Great Alne is a small village in England, known as Round Alne in the Middle Ages. It is situated north-west of Stratford-upon-Avon, north-east of Alcester, and from Warwick in the County of Warwickshire, on the road to Wootton Wawen via Little Alne. The name Great Alne takes its name from the River Alne. First chronicled in the charter of King Ethelbald (723–737) "near to the river which our ancestors used to call, and which is called to this day, 'Alwine'." The Celtic word Alwine meaning bright or clear.[1] On 26 November 1969 Warwickshire County Council formally designated an area within Great Alne as a Conservation Area, including most of the village east of the Memorial Hall and has within its curtlage twelve listed buildings of local architectural and historical value. [2] In the 2001 census, the population of the parish was 587.
