Long Lawford Parish Council

Lawford ChurchLong Lawford is a village and civil parish in the Rugby borough of Warwickshire, England, located just west of Rugby, in 2001 the parish had a population of 2,831.   The village is one of four Lawfords in the locality, and is named long because, historically, the village ran along the road between Rugby and Coventry. The other three Lawfords are Church Lawford, Little Lawford and Lawford Heath.

The village is next to the A428 road. The Rugby to Coventry railway line (West Coast Main Line) runs through the village, but it has never had its own station. The main manor house in Long Lawford is Holbrook Grange, the ancestral home of the Caldecotts. Although the house has now changed hands, the influences of the Caldecotts remain, with one of the three village public houses being "The Caldecott Arms".
