Frankton - Held by monks
Close to the River Leam, this village was known as "Francheton" at the time of the Domesday Survery.

It was held in part by Roger, Earl of Shrewsbury, but until the dissolution of the monasteries, most of it was held by the monks of Coventry.

The 17th century manor house has a 14th century door and a fine Georgian staircase, said to have come from the priory at Warwick. The church was largely rebuilt to Scott's design in 1872, but the original tower remains, 13th century in its lower storeys and Perpendicular above.
