Lapworth village lies in the Birmingham green belt, and on the junction of the Stratford and Grand Union Canals. The village is strongly associated with the Gunpowder Plot of 1605, as the leader of the plotters, Robert Catesby was born and lived here, and his tomb is in Lapworth Church. There are two National Trust properties close to Lapworth; Baddesley Clinton and Packwood House, with another fine house, Wroxall Abbey, country seat of Sir Christopher Wren also close by. Lapworth is a popular area for cuisine and has many 'gastro-pubs' including The Boot, The Navigation and the Fleur-de-Lys. Lapworth is just 5 miles from Warwick, with its imposing castle, and from the beautiful town of Royal Leamington Spa. The medieval town of Stratford-upon-Avon has an abundance of amenities and attractions, including the houses of William Shakespeare, museums and theatre, and is just a short drive away. A perfect holiday destination at any time of year.
