Barford, Sherborne and Wasperton

The joint parishes of Barford, Sherbourne and Wasperton are set in beautiful Warwickshire countryside to the south and west of Warwick. I have been fighting to keep them that way by opposing the sand and gravel pit planned to the immediate south of Barford on St John’s College Oxford land.

The proposed quarry will irretrievably damage the agricultural nature of the area, bring an immense amount of heavy traffic through the villages and on to the A429, but perhaps most concerningly, the prevailing winds of the site lead to Barford St Peter’s CofE Primary School.
