Hatton is just over three miles north west of Warwick and now contains a large housing estate. The church was rebuilt in 1880 to match the thirteenth century tower which was retained. At Hatton there is a large hospital specialising in the treatment of mental illnesses. Shrewley and Beausale (or Beausall) are hamlets within the parish.
