The Village Websmith - Web Design & Services for Abenhall,, Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire

Abenhall is a tiny, ancient village in a secluded quiet valley near Mitcheldean. The parish includes the settlement of Plump Hill, on the Mitcheldean to Cinderford Road as it climbs into the high Forest.

Once part of the Westbury Hundred (which was known as Dene at the time of the 1086 Doomsday book) Abenhall is on the Flaxley to Mitcheldean Road. Originally a mining and iron making centre, it is notable for its 14th century Church of St Michael, which is built of local red sandstone and has excellent contemporary carvings relating to the Forest of Dean's industries. These include a shield bearing the arms of the Freeminers on the west wall and the fabulous mid -15th century octagonal font, that has tools of miners and metalworkers incised on its St Michaels at Abenhall sides.

St. Michael's Church - originally built as a chapel of ease, the church was expanded in the 14th century to include nave, south aisle and tower. The arms of the Freeminers can be seen on the south side of the tower and on the 18th century font. St. Michael's Church - Abenhall is 1.5 km south of Mitcheldean and is set in beautiful surroundings on the edge of the Forest. Old Parish baptism, marriage and burial registers, from 1596, are stored at the Gloucestershire Record Office.

Updating your website is the real key to success in Aberdeen.

Have you updated your website lately? Well if you haven't, prehaps you are wondering why the phone doesn't ring as often as it used to… The real key to success with your website is to keep the content updated little and often. All businesses evolve, products and services change in reaction to your market, so let people know that you are on the ball.

Incidentally, the search engines also like this approach. The algorithms they use to analyse the relative merits of websites are very complex, but are designed to ensure that the people that use their services are offered sites that quickly deliver high quality, relevant and up to date information.

The Middle Way

In an ideal world all work would be done by Friday. Unfortunately, none of us is Robinson Crusoe and we have to balance tasks with the time available. The understanding of this is what led to the creation of the Webinthebox® product and the Village Websmith structure. Your website gets kept up to date through a collaborative approach where you do what you have the time and resources to do, then we pick up the rest. You pay only for the help you really need and your website keeps you ahead of your competitors.

Customers in Aberdeen should all update regularly.
