Berkswell is a small picturesque village situated in leafy Warwickshire, 7 miles west of Coventry City centre, although its’ Parish boundary stretches well into the larger neighbouring commuter settlement of Balsall Common.
Berkswell’s history can be traced back most easily to the impressive 12th century St John the Baptist Church, although its origins appear to go as far back as the 8th century.
