Donnington
 

Donnington is the largest village within the parish consisting of a population of 4477 (Dec 02) and is situated north east of Telford Town centre.

It was once a mining community but this ended in 1979 when the Granville Colliery closed. The Parish Council offices and community hall is located here in Turreff Avenue sharing the same building as the library. Donnington has a small number of shops on Wrekin Drive and Albert Place.

It is also home to the War Departments Brigade Ordinance Depot (BOD) which moved here prior to World War 2 (then known as Central Ordinance Depot –COD).

This ward is represented by six councillors on the parish council.

Muxton
 

Muxton was originally a small village dating back to Saxon times but has now grown with new residential dwellings constantly being erected.

It consists of a population of 4245 (Dec 02) and is situated between Lilleshall and Donnington. The residents recently fought against plans for the Coal Board to start open-cast mining and, fortunately for the area, won.

This ward is also represented by six councillors on the parish council.
