The Village of Claverdon

In our Henley newsletter we’ve been looking at some of the beautiful Warwickshire villages in our area. This edition we focus on Claverdon.

Claverdon lies west of the county town of Warwick. Its name comes from the Old English for “clover hill”. The hill is near the centre of the parish.

The Manor of Claverdon is recorded in the Domesday Book, which was commissioned in December 1085 by William the Conqueror. It also references a priest which may indicate that the village had a church in the 11th century. Parts of the village’s parish church, St. Michael and All Angels date back to the 14th Century.

Claverdon has a community shop which is a valuable focus for village life. It is run by volunteers. Initially it was housed in a portacabin but a permanent replacement was opened in 2010 which was paid for with help from the Parish Council, donations, fund raising events. It’s a remarkable achievement for the village.

Claverdon Hall is a Grade II listed part half-timbered country house. Pevsner makes no reference to the Hall which may be a 15th-century house, perhaps earlier, but which was restored in the 20th century and much altered.

The village is served by Claverdon railway station with trains operated by Chiltern Railways and London Midland giving access to Stratford on Avon, Leamington Spa, Birmingham and London.

There are many sports clubs in the village which are well supported by parishioners. They also attract a much wider population which sustain the clubs through membership. There’s a rugby, football, cricket and tennis clubs and other sports and fitness classes which meet in the Church Centre and the Dorothea Mitchell Hall.

There are two public houses, The Crown on Henley Street and the Red Lion on Station Road which may be one of the oldest buildings in the village.
