The Peeping Tom

Burton Green is a village and civil parish in Warwickshire, England, some 8 km (5.0 mi) southwest of Coventry and close to Kenilworth. It is mostly residential, surrounded by farmland and has a village hall, a primary school and a pub called the 'Peeping Tom'.

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. [1]

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.
