The Sheldon Tapestry: Rugby

Rugby ‘RVGBY’

Several Warwickshire towns were built by the River Avon. Here it flows past Rugby before reaching Warwick and Stratford-upon-Avon. The Tapestry shows St Andrew’s church, that was largely rebuilt in the 1870s.

Watling Street was a major Roman road, running through Warwickshire from London to Chester. In the 1590s it was already an ancient roadway. Today it’s the A5.
