Furnace End is a hamlet in the North Warwickshire district of the county of Warwickshire in England. It is located on the B4114 road where the road intersects with the B4098 about half way between the market towns of Coleshill and Atherstone. Other nearby places include Nether Whitacre, Over Whitacre (where population details can be found), Whitacre Heath, Shustoke, Kingsbury and Fillongley. The village is believed to have acquired its name because of the iron smelting furnaces located there, which were owned by the Jennens family of nearby Nether Whitacre.
