Aston Cantlow

Aston Cantlow lies 5 miles North-West of Stratford, and 2 miles North-East of Wilmcote, the home of Mary Arden, Shakespeare's mother.

This picture shows the 16th Century Guild House, just opposite the village church.

This is the village pub, The King's Head.

Old tombstones, old yew trees, and old pines in the churchyard of St John the Baptist at Aston Cantlow.

This is the church in which Shakespeare's parents, John Shakespeare and Mary Arden, are believed to have been married.

The interior of the church is shown in the picture just below.
