Ansty Town Information

The name of this tiny village - lying near the mighty chalk escarpment of Bulbarrow in the midst of a rolling, fertile landscape - originates with a Saxon word denoting a narrow path on a hill. A castle lies in ruins but a second castle - now a girls school – stands a mile away. Next to it is a richly-adorned Roman Catholic chapel. All around are fine walks and beautiful views.
