Search Baxterley Churchyard:

Baxterley is a village and civil parish in the North Warwickshire district of Warwickshire in England.
The village is about two miles west of Atherstone.
Baxterley has been in existence since Saxon times but is not mentioned in the Domesday Book. It is thought that the original village site was built up around the church, quite some distance away from the current village and was mainly a centre for agricultural dwellings and working. The opening of the coal mine resulted in a gradual migration of the labour force some 2 miles or so down the road, so that nowadays there are just a few isolated cottages and houses close to the church and the majority of the village has effectively relocated to its present position.

Baxterley Church, which, unusually, is not dedicated to any Saint is situated at the western side of the Parish towards Wood End and dates from the 12th century. It is grade II listed.It can be found 1 mile from Baxterley to Hurley and Wood End at the junction of Main Road and Hipsley Lane.
