Ilmington is the northern gateway to the Cotswolds. Its green heart is traffic free with quiet lanes, the remains of historic orchards and lovely walks. Ilmington boasts the highest point in Warwickshire, with far reaching views in all directions from Ilmington Downs and Lark Stoke. You can see eight counties when the weather is clear.
St Mary's Church has some lovely Norman carved church mice and an apple map (tapestry showing old orchards). Morris Dancing has been a long established tradition in Ilmington.
The famous Nobel Prize Winner and Member of the Order of the Merit, Dorothy Hodgkin, lived here. She identifed penicillin and insulin.
