Brief introduction to Bubbenhall
Bubbenhall is a small to medium sized village (population 655 in the 2011 census)
in the district of Warwick in the county of Warwickshire.
It is approximately 5 miles south-east of Coventry and 5 miles north-north-east of Royal Leamington Spa
and lies just off the main A445 from Leamington Spa to Rugby
Bubbenhall has a long history
and a good number of historic buildings remain.
The village is not just a barren dormitory for the city of Coventry
and other larger places - there are several businesses
based here, including two public houses and a
gardening contractor. You will see in the history page
that in the past there were butchers, a smithy and shoemakers in the
village - now sadly gone.
The Parish Church of St Giles is mainly 13th and 14th centuries but the chapel
was established some time before 1153. There are six bells in the medieval clock
tower and in the church you can find two "green men", dating from the 13th
century, a Norman font, and stained glass by Kempe. For more information,
timetables etc visit our Church Page.
The village hall
is well booked for clubs and activities, the recreation ground has play
equipment, a football pitch and tennis and basketball courts.
The mobile library from Warwickshire County Council comes every three weeks. The precise hours can be found at
