Aston Cross is group of houses around the junction of the A46 and the B4079. This is an active development area. The old public house, the Queen's Head, was on this junction but has now been converted into flats with several new houses in the grounds. Further larger scale development is scheduled to the western side of Aston Cross.
The MOD camp extends to the junction on the northern side of the A46 and this currently limits growth of the hamlet in that direction but the whole site may be developed for housing at a future date.
