Pipe Aston - Clay Pipes & Norman Church

Norman Church Shropshire/Herefordshire borders

The ancient settlement has two motte-and-baileys – one in good condition and one a ruin. The village church dates from Norman times, probably the 12th Century. In the 18th century Aston built a rural industry of making clay pipes, from which the prefix “Pipe” came.  For details see the Pipe Aston village website
