There is also a fascinating plague stone to be found on the small green to the north of the roundabout in the village. In addition to the rich and characterful environment, the real draw to Ombersley is its convenience, both in terms of its geographical location, permitting ease of motoring access to surrounding towns and Motorway Links, and also the value of its plentiful amenities/facilities which include cricket, tennis and golf clubs, a Delicatessen, Butchers, Bakers, four Public Houses, Dentist, Doctors, Primary School and a Character Church, namely St. Andrews.
