About Wheaton Aston, England
On Feb. 20, 1990, Wheaton became sister cities with Wheaton Aston, Staffordshire, England. Situated in the heart of the English countryside, the village of Wheaton Aston is part of a small, rural community whose original ancestors were skilled in farming and timber-felling. Its name, which refers to the wheat and other cereal crops grown there, reflects this heritage.
Though many of the villagers are now employed in nearby cities such as Birmingham, all who dwell here appreciate the gentle, natural beauty of this area and the fertile fields in which farmers have grown their traditional crops for over a thousand years.
