From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Minton is a hamlet in Shropshire, England.

It is located in the parish of Church Stretton, 2½ miles southwest of the market town of Church Stretton. A historic settlement, it is situated on a foothill of the Long Mynd at around 240m above sea level. As of 2010, there are around 12 dwellings in the hamlet.

The place name is from Welsh mynydd meaning ‘hill’ and Old English tun meaning ‘settlement’, ‘town’. The hamlet has largely retained its Anglo-Saxon layout, with a patchwork of plots and haphazard narrow lanes. There are remains of a motte, which dates from either Anglo-Saxon or Norman times. It was a township and Royal manor, held by King Edward prior to the Norman conquest. It is mentioned in the Domesday Book.
