The first mention of Tamworth in history is in 781, when King Offa of Mercia signed a document in his palace at Tamworth. Alfred the Great's daughter Aethelfleda fortified the town in 913 and at the Norman Conquest the area was given to Robert de Marmion. Tamworth has a rich history at the heart of England
