Burton Green is a village and civil parish in the Warwick district, in the county of Warwickshire, England, some 8 km (5.0 mi) southwest of Coventry and close to Kenilworth (where the population can be found in Abbey Ward). It is mostly residential, surrounded by farmland and has a village hall, a primary school and a pub called the 'Peeping Tom'. The civil parish was created from part of Stoneleigh in 2 April 2012.[1]

It is situated directly on the border with Coventry and is contiguous with the city's Tile Hill Village and Westwood Heath districts.

Burton Green comprises four roads: Red Lane, Hob Lane, Hodgetts Lane and Cromwell Lane.

There is a disused water tower off Cromwell Lane, which has planning permission for conversion to a private home.[2]

High Speed 2[edit]

The route for the proposed high-speed rail line, called High Speed 2, from London to Birmingham will run right through the centre of Burton Green, making use of the disused rail route that is currently a Greenway.
