'We are at the heart of “Shakespeare Country” and it is reputed that William Shakespeare’s parents married in St John the Baptist Church in Aston Cantlow and held their wedding breakfast in the nearby King’s Head hostelry. The home of Shakespeare’s wife, Mary Arden, is close by in the adjoining parish of Wilmcote. In those days the two parishes were one.

'Within the parish are many places of interest including the medieval Guild Hall and the longest aqueduct in England, the Edstone Aqueduct on the Stratford-upon-Avon Canal. Slightly further away are many other historic buildings such as Ragley Hall and Coughton Court that is associated with Guy Fawkes and the Bonfire Night Plotters. Stratford-upon-Avon, with all its historic interest and wide range of shopping to suit all tastes, is only 7 miles away.'
