Wootton Wawen

Wootton Wawen is a small village located on the A3400, just south of Henley-in-Arden and 6 miles north of Stratford-upon-Avon. It derives its name from "Wudutun" meaning enclosure or village in or by a wood and wagen, who gave his name to the settlement.


There are several notable landmarks in the village, including St. Peter's Church (of Saxon origin, and the oldest Church in Warwickshire), Wootton Hall, The Bulls Head and Navigation Public Houses and some fine individual houses from past centuries. The historic Stratford-upon-Avon Canal passes through Wootton and is carried on a cast iron aqueduct over the main road. The village has a railway station on the Stratford to Birmingham line and is also served by regular bus links to Stratford and Birmingham.
