Ruyton XI Towns dates back to the 12th Century when a castle was built and was the major manor for 11 local townships, hence XI in the villages name. The cross on the junction of Church Street and School Road was erected in 1881 on the site of the old lock-up of the Ancient Manor and Borough of Ruyton and should have housed a light. Ruyton has some amenities including a primary school and pub and with Baschurch being a short drive away the choice increases to include an academy school, another primary school and pre-school. There is also a prep school near by, Packwood. Baschurch also has to offer a couple of shops, two pubs one being gastro style and the other offers Indian dining and doctors. Ruyton XI Towns is approximately 12 miles from Shrewsbury and 10 miles from Oswestry.
