Warslow is a small village in Staffordshire, England. It is located in the Peak District National Park about 10 miles (16 km) north of Ashbourne. Although in the county of Staffordshire, the village lies close to the Derbyshire border, and in fact has a Derbyshire postal address, i.e. Warslow, Buxton, Derbyshire.

The village has two schools, but due to the lack of children from the village itself and the surrounding villages only one of the schools is still used, the other has been turned into a house. Manifold Primary School, (the school which is still in use) caters mainly for children between the ages of 4 to 9, however they do have run nursery which caters to pre-school children. On occasion the school will allow for a group of children to stay at the school an extra 2 years as opposed to going straight to a secondary school (the two main schools which the pupils will attend after leaving are Churnet View Middle School and Saint Edwards Middle School, both located in Leek).

The village has two chapels and one church. The church, St Lawrence, has an unusually wide chancel, windows by William Morris and is used frequently by members of the village/nearby villages as well as visitors. Of the two chapels one has been converted into a house and the other is in the process of being converted.

There are numerous fresh water springs located within the village and at one time this water was bottled and sold, however, for whatever reason the water is no longer bottled or sold but visitors/inhabitants to the village can freely drink/use these water sources.

The village has a single public house, The Greyhound and Hare, which dates back to around 1750. The Greyhound and Hare is located roughly in the centre of the village across the road from the fully converted chapel.

There is a village hall which has excellent facilities and is used for weddings, parties, meetings and village events and auctions, parking is also available on the car park for visitor wishing to walk or explore the area, a contribution is requested for this, although it is not mandatory. Both the village Post Office and shop are now closed.
