There are 2 places called Weston Heath in Shropshire! ;D

The one near Weston-Under-Red-Castle. Modern postcode SY4 5XE.

And another near Sherifhales; postcode TF11 8RY.

They are some 20 miles apart.

As I said , I  thought  it was odd.

Here's the Hodnet registers:

Shropshire has lots of Westons - one of my main lines was from Weston Rhyn :D
