The church of St Andrew was built in 1797 by Thomas Johnson of Warwick.

Christopher Savage, Lord of Elmley Castle, Worcestershire, and an Esquire of the Body of King Henry VIII, had livery of the manor of Aston-sub-Edge on 14 May 1521,[3] which he had inherited from his father, Sir Christopher Savage, Knt., (who fell at the Battle of Flodden in 1513) who had acquired it by his marriage to Anne, daughter of Sir John Stanley, Knt., of Elford, Staffordshire (d. Nov 1508)[4]

Dover's Hill lies about 1 mile (2 km) to the south of Aston Subedge. In the 1630s Endymion Porter, a courtier and diplomat who lived at Aston-sub-Edge,[5] brought members of the court to see the Cotswold Olympics which were held on Dover's Hill.
