Aston Botterell lies at the foot of Brown Clee Hill and to the east of the B4364 Bridgnorth to Ludlow road, some eight miles from Bridgnorth. The views of Brown Clee Hill, whether shrouded in cloud or not, are magnificent, as are the extensive views to the east from some parts of the parish. The village of Aston Botterell is not much more than a cluster of farm buildings and a church, but its lack of inhabitants is more than compensated by the beautiful parish church. It is a stone building which has obviously been altered and added to over the years. Nevertheless, it retains a certain charm in its stone and timbers. Inside the church are some magnificent memorials to members of the Botterell family who gave the parish its name. Little is known of where the family originated from, but records of the area show that the family can be traced as far back as 1202. Certainly by the late 14th century they were lords of Aston Botterell and living in what is now Aston Manor Farm. The oldest part of this house dates from around the 13th century. [1]
