Burton Hastings is a village in the English county of Warwickshire.[1]

Location[edit]

The village is located 4.4 miles (7.1 km) east of the town of Nuneaton and is 13.7 miles (22.0 km) north east of the city of Coventry. The nearest railway station is at Nuneaton which is 4.6 miles (7.4 km) east of the village. The northern parish boundary is a little south of the A5 trunk road known as Watling Street which is also the county boundary at this point between Warwickshire and Leicestershire. The northern boundary is marked by the Soar Brook which divides it from nearby Stretton Baskerville. The boundary to west and south is with Nuneaton, Bulkington, and Wolvey and the River Anker. The eastern boundary follows the road from Wolvey to Hinckley. A branch of the Coventry Canal system, known as the Ashby de la Zouch Canal passes through the west of the parish. The name derives from the Hastings family who held the manor until 1529. Burton Hastings is often used by commuters who work in nearby towns.

Population[edit]

The current population of the village is around 250. There are 92 houses in the village, on five streets all of which branch off from Hinckley Road.

Religion[edit]

The parish Church is called Saint Botolph and is located at the centre of the village.
