Wall is a small village and civil parish in Staffordshire, England, just south of Lichfield. It lies on the site of the Roman settlement of Letocetum.

The parish includes the small villages of Pipehill (originally a separate parish), Hilton, Chesterfield and the tiny hamlet of Aldershawe, which is about half a mile north of the village of Wall.

Pipehill

Pipehill was a separate parish to the north of Wall until 1879 when the rural portion of Pipehill was merged with Wall. This was the first of a number of boundary changes which increased the area of Wall over the next century. (Source: Victoria County History, see below)
