The Central England/Cotswolds region
Warwickshire has many contrasting towns and villages and is covered in historical Castles, Churches and Stately homes. Traditional market towns dot the picturesque countryside. One can spend the day visiting a multitude of museums and art galleries or hunting for antiques, take lunch in a country pub and then head to one of many fine restaurants, pubs or theatres in the evening. Sports enthusiasts can enjoy a round at many fine golf courses or spend an evening at Stratford upon Avon or Warwick race course.
Lapworth village lies in the Birmingham green belt and on the junction of two canals, the Stratford Canal and the Grand Union Canal.
The village is strongly associated with the Gunpowder Plot of 1605, as the charismatic leader of the plotters, Robert Catesby, was born and lived here. His tomb is in Lapworth Church.
There are two National Trust properties close to Lapworth, the historic houses of Baddesley Clinton and Packwood House. Another fine house, Wroxall Abbey, country seat of Sir Christopher Wren also lies close, as well as the peaceful tranquility of Hay Wood, owned by the Foresty Commission.
Lapworth is a popular area for cuisine and has many 'gastro-pubs' including The Boot, The Navigation and the Fleur-de-Lys.
