Eathorpe is a small village five miles east of Leamington Spa. It is close to the B4455, which follows the line of the Roman Fosse Way. It has a population of 190. The village has a village hall, the original being built in the early 1970s and then totally rebuilt in 2003. Eathorpe Hall is the former home of Samuel Shepheard, who built the original Shepheard’s Hotel in Cairo.


Weston under Wetherley is on the B4453, 4 miles northeast of Leamington Spa, with a population of 468. The most notable building is the parish church of Saint Michael. Weston is unusual amongst settlements of its size in that there is not a single shop there, the last being demolished in the 1990s, nor a pub, which was closed in 2014.


Offchurch is a village on the River Leam, 3 miles (4.8 km) east of Leamington Spa with a population of 250. The origin of the name “Offa’s Church” suggests a connection to Offa, who was King of Mercia from 757 to 796. Legend claims that Offa’s son, Fremund, was murdered and buried at his Father’s palace, now called Offchurch, the church being built to commemorate his death.


Hunningham is a small village 3 miles to the north-east of Leamington Spa, with a population of 198. The history of the Manor of Hunningham has been documented continuously for a thousand years, from the time of the Domesday Book, written in 1086, to the present day. The village public house is the Red Lion, which was refurbished in 2007 after flooding by the River Leam.


Wappenbury is a small village located on the north bank of the River Leam, almost entirely inside the ramparts of an Iron Age hill fort. Roman pottery and kilns have been found in the village; which is only 1 mile from the Fosse Way.
