There are traces of human occupation and land use in the Parish over the last 4000 years. For instance, the late Neolithic tumuli in Maer Hills, a late Iron Age hill fort known as “The Borough”, the Roman camp on Camp Hill, the Roman Signal Station in Manor Road and Saxon associations with Whitmore Hall and Church. The parish comprises five main settlements;
