Wigrams Turn is set close to Napton-on-the-Hill, an idyllic hillside village, watched over by its majestic Windmill and historic St. Lawrence’s Church. The Grand Union and Oxford Canal form a moat like quality at the foot of the hill, a set of 8 locks where the two canals meet, challenge the numerous boaters that use the waterways each year.
Napton has an amazing ability to harmonise the old and new. Small stone and brick cottages nestle into the hillside alongside spacious modern homes. It has a surprisingly large number of amenities for a small village, which include 3 public houses, sports facilities, fishing pools, a village store with post office, general store and coffee shop.
Napton-on-the-Hill is located 3 miles (4.8km) East of Southam in Warwickshire on the crossroads of the A425, Tomlow and Butt Hill Roads. It is surrounded by a number of other small villages such as Stockton, Shuckburgh and Priors Marston and is within easy travelling distance of Leamington Spa, Banbury, Coventry, Rugby and Daventry.
