Norbury is a small village and civil parish in Shropshire, England. It lies to the west of the Long Mynd and the nearest town is Bishop's Castle. The parish is made up of three townships Asterton, Whitcott and Hardwick. There is a parish church dedicated to All Saints and a Country House B&B called The Coach House.HistoryNorbury is a chapelry of Lydbury North Ancient Parish in Shropshire. The name Norbury can be interpreted in Anglo-Saxon to mean 'North fortification', this is due to the hill fort defenses that are situated nearby and the fact that Norbury is tucked away in the bucolic Onny Valley. Over time the boundaries of the parish have not changed, however the parish is separated into two halves due to the boundaries of Wentnor parish. Norbury parish is made up of three townships, Asterton, Whitcott and Hardwick. There are two identified types of non-Church of England denominations in Norbury Primitive Methodist and Wesleyan Methodist.In 1870 Asterton was described as: "a township in Norbury parish, Salop; on Long Mynd hills, 4½ miles SW of Church-Stretton. Pop., 164." Asterton is commonly known for farming hence the name Asterton meaning 'Eastern home farm'. There is a Primitive Methodist church which was built in 1839. Church records show that in 1851 55 people attended the service. Today, the primitive Methodist church is derelict and is believed to have closed in the late 1950s.
