Removal Company Cannock
Cannock is a town located in the south of the county of Staffordshire. The town is very close to the Cannock Chase Area of Outstanding National Beauty. The town has its own railway station, which links Cannock with Walsall and then Birmingham. Cannock is also well-connected by car; it is situated within a short distance of the A5, as well as the M6 Toll.
The town now known has Cannock has not always gone by its current name, and historians have traced the evolution of the current title. Originally, Cannock was called Chenet, as recorded in the 1086 Doomsday Book. It then became Chnoc, then Cnot, then Canot, then Canoc, and finally Cannock, which is believed to be the result of Norman language influences. Traditionally, Cannock had always been a small community centred on agriculture, but this changed in the late 1800s when the coal mining industry developed in the area. Industry brought house-building, and thereby the removal of the quiet village feel that once existed, to be replaced by a thriving town. As with most industry however, it declined in the 20th century, and the last colliery in the area was closed in 1967.
Since the closure of the coal mines in the area, there has been no new industry in the local area. As a result, Cannock serves mainly as a commuter town, for the larger settlements nearby of Walsall and Birmingham. Nonetheless, a recent report by business advisors BDO found that the average annual company revenue growth in Cannock was 49% in 2017, suggesting that there is plenty of economic activity within the town too. New business parks are being built in the town, which reflects this growth and investment in the local economy.
The average house price in Cannock is £203,581 according to property website Zoopla, which is slightly below the UK average. A move to a three-bedroom house on average will be a touch below that price, while a 4-bedroom property costs £302,626. The average rent in Cannock is £576 per month.
The town of Cannock had a population of 29,018 in the 2011 UK Census. White ethnic groups comprised 97.4% of the population. In 2011, there was 9.9% unemployment amongst economically active men, and 7.5% unemployment amongst economically active women. A third of the population had no formal qualifications. Three quarters of the residents of Cannock believed that they had either good or very good states of health.
Cannock’s proximity to the Cannock Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty means that an active lifestyle is easy to achieve when living in the town. There are also several golf clubs in the nearby area, and the town has a highly successful hockey team. For a more historical option, there is a Cannock Chase German War Cemetery, which is a memorial and burial site for almost five thousand German soldiers that lost their lives during the First and Second World Wars.
