Maesbury traditionally consists of five hamlets: Ball, Gwernybrenin, Newbridge, Maesbury and Penisbury Marsh, though the wider area now includes Aston and Woolston.
Maesbury Marsh is at the southern end of the area. There is a public house here, located by the main road bridge over Montgomery Canal, called the Navigation Inn. The Montgomery Canal is being restored in this area at the moment, which connects with the Shropshire Union Canal/Ellesmere Canal further to the northwest.
In nearby Woolston is St Winifred's Well, which is believed to have been a resting place for monks travelling from Holywell to Shrewsbury Abbey with her body.
A biennial canal festival is held in Maesbury.
