Dorridge – Dorridge is neither urban nor a village. However, it sits right next to Lapworth and the Warwickshire countryside, with green fields being a short walk from Dorridge centre.
The railway station is on the line between London and Birmingham. Chiltern Railways have created an inter-city route out of the run-down remnants of what had become primarily a goods line. A London Midland route now terminates in Dorridge (or Leamington Spa), from Birmingham.
Dorridge has a small shopping centre with a wide selection of shops including a good sized supermarket and an independent pharmacy; a village hall; at least three churches; and a number of primary schools. It has a substantial park bordering the countryside. There are also a few small cafe’s, restaurants, a variety of takeaways and three pubs.
Henley in Arden – Henley in Arden is a medieval market town with many buildings of historic interest along its High Street. Just a 10 minute drive away, there are many shops, restaurants, wine bars and pubs, and of course no trip to Henley is complete without visiting the famous Henley Ice Cream Parlour and Tea Rooms.
