From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Onibury is a village and civil parish on the River Onny in southern Shropshire, about 4 miles (6.4 km) northwest of the market town of Ludlow.

The toponym “Onibury” is derived from the Old English for “fortified place on the River Onny”. “Onny” means “river on whose banks ash trees grew”, from the Welsh “on” meaning ashes.

Onibury is recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Aneberie. It had 15 households, making it a fairly medium-sized settlement for the time, and a priest. The manor formed part of the Saxon hundred of Culvestan.
