Mary Arden's Farm is located in Wilmcote, which is situated to the north-west of the River Avon and was traditionally known as 'The Forest of Arden'. By William Shakespeare’s time it had long ceased to be a forest but comprised both enclosed and open farmland, with patches of woodland and common wasteland.
