Steeple Aston is an ancient settlement with roots going back to Roman times, maybe earlier. Today, with a population of around 1,000, it is a busy village with plenty to see and do.
The village has its own shop and Post Office, Harris Stores, and a traditional pub and restaurant, the Red Lion. Much activity centres around the village hall where you can find everything from WI meetings, to badminton sessions and, from time to time, amateur and professional theatre. The village is known for its enthusiastic team of bellringers, and has thriving football and cricket teams.
