Perton got its name from 'Pear Town' - referring to a particular type of pear which grows in the area. The original manor was owned by Edward the Confessor and then by the Abbot of Westminster until 1162 when it was transferred to the monarch who then gave it to Lord William Perton. During the first World War, Fern Fields was used as a relief landing ground for No 38 (Home Defence) Squadron of the Royal Flying Corps.
Perton and its surrounding villages are popular places for a range of buyers, from professionals to families, with easy links to motorways and to the nearby city of Wolverhampton and good schools. Many buyers will start with a smaller property in one of the locations and then move onto a larger property either in the same area or in one of the nearby villages.
Manager of the Perton Office, Mrs Sabi Kooner, has lived in Perton for 21 years, "Perton is a friendly village style area which has many amenities in the centre of Perton, but has easy access to nearby Telford, Wolverhampton City centre, and the villages of Codsall, Pattingham Albrighton and Brewood. My children have grown up in Perton and gone to the local schools which have had good Ofsted reports. The area also provides plenty of activities for all age ranges."
As a popular residential area, Perton consists of modern housing ranging from flats to two bedroom houses, three bedroom semi's, and four bedroom detached houses. The nearby villages of Codsall, Pattingham and Albrighton and Brewood also feature a mixture of properties ranging from one or two bedroom flats, townhouses, Victorian and Edwardian semi detached and detached homes.
