Village History

Warmington has a long and varied history. It was mentioned in the Domesday Book, but archaeology has demonstrated that Warmington has been lived in since the time of the stone age hunter gatherers through to the present day. The parish is in Warwickshire and, until the nineteenth century, was in the southernmost tip of the ancient diocese of Lichfield. It is built predominantly in the local ironstone, characteristic of the Banbury region. The traditional building style, together with its history, has shaped the village to its present individual appearance.

Warmington is a nucleated village based around a village green with farmlands stretching out from the centre on all sides. Until recent decades it was distinctively an agricultural community with many small trades related to farming.

While farming still plays an important part of our village life, many of the traditional trades have disappeared or been replaced by more modern occupations.
