Things to do in Harbury, Warwickshire

Harbury is an ancient, prehistoric village sitting on a hill near the Fosse Way Roman road in Warwickshire. The area has a large number of old quarries that were used to extract lyas limestone used in the manufacture of cement. These are now used for recreational purposes or for landfill.

The Chiltern Railway runs through Harbury in the deepest railway cutting in Europe made purely by manual labour. Some of the waste from this work is now an SSSI that is one of the top butterfly habitats in the UK.

Harbury has a current population of over 2,500 who are served by five vibrant village pubs and one club. There is a popular rugby club and the village hosts a large number of community events throughout the year as well as having a wide range of societies for hobby activities.

Local employers include Codemasters, the video games company, and Aston Martin, the sports car manufacturer.
