History

The parish of Ettington has a living link to the Domesday Book that is unmatched in England. It once stood on the frontier of the Roman Empire. It has a celebrated haunted house, and its church was considered the ugliest in Warwickshire. A lord of the manor died in the Tower of London, and the heroic death of another is recalled by Shakespeare. And the parish saw the birth of a composer whose music is still used at royal funerals.
