Ilmington is a village and civil parish about north-west of Shipston-on-Stour and south of Stratford-on-Avon in the Cotswolds (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) in Warwickshire, England. Ilmington is the highest village in Warwickshire and is at the foot of the Ilmington Downs, which is the highest point in Warwickshire. Residents are called "Ilmingtonians".HistoryIn the 10th century the village's toponym was Ylmandunes in Old English. This evolved into Elmington because it had many elm trees. When Dutch Elm Disease came to England it killed the trees and now none remains in the village.The Elizabethan poet Sir Thomas Overbury was born at Compton Scorpion Manor, just south of the village.In 1934 the Royal Christmas Message broadcast by King George V of England was relayed worldwide from Ilmington Manor, home of the Flower family, and introduced by 65 year old Walton Handy, a local shepherd, with carols from the church choir and bell ringing from the church.
