Ashow is a beautiful, historic village that has so far avoided the typical expansion of most British settlements and has a population of around a hundred residents. It was recorded in the Domesday Book, circa 1085 and being part of the estate of Stoneleigh Abbey, has an exceptionally detailed and well documented history. The village currently enjoys Conservation Area status.
The village comprises around 51 houses, many of which are Grade I/Grade II Listed buildings, a number of which are of timber framed construction. Our oldest inhabited property is Trinity Cottage which is of a timber Cruck Truss construction built in the 17th century.
The Church of the Assumption of Our Lady is an early Norman gem built circa 1078.
The village has a great community spirit centering around the Village Club, itself a Grade II listed building and welcomes visitors and villagers alike. The Club hosts a number of events throughout the year on it's well maintained grounds and has recently been completely redecorated and refurnished inside.
