Munslow is a scattered rural parish in the heart of the Corvedale. It is an ancient township, giving its name to the ‘hundred of Munslow,’ which had various local and administrative functions for centuries. Today the parish comprises Munslow, Aston Munslow and the hamlets of Broadstone, Hungerford and Beambridge.

Munslow is the home of a 12th century parish church, dedicated to St Michael; with a ‘chapel of ease’ at Broadstone. In the parish there are over thirty Grade II (or above) listed buildings: two of these are the Crown Country Inn at Munslow and the Swan Inn at Aston Munslow. In the past, both have been used as courthouses.

Until 1982, the local children were educated at Munslow School but are now taught at the Corvedale School in a neighbouring village. There is a village shop and garage at Aston Munslow. There is infrequent public transport but there is a community minibus run by volunteers that provides access to local towns.
