Things to do in Austrey, Warwickshire
Situated at the northernmost tip of Warwickshire, surrounded by rural Leicestershire, Staffordshire and South Derbyshire, Austrey is only two miles from the National Forest.
An attractive village clustered around a picturesque 14th century church, Austrey has pleasant countryside views and a vibrant village community life.
There are several working farms in and around the village, with both arable and pasture land,. Austrey is a predominantly rural community, which continues to be proud of its mining roots, its 150 year old school building now used as a Village Hall and many other local landmarks, from the thatched "Bird in Hand" pub to the "rocket" on the hill.
