The village gave its name to Norbury Junction, about one mile to the south-east. At one time (1835), this was a junction between the main Birmingham and Liverpool Junction Canal (later to become part of the Shropshire Union Canal) and a branch stretching south-west through Newport to link to the now-abandoned Shrewsbury Canal.
The body of the Parish Church of St Peter is constructed in sandstone, dates from the 14th century, and is mainly in Decorated style. There is a canonical sundial on the south wall. The tower, built in 1759, is in brick, and in Georgian style. The church was restored in 1826–29, when the north vestry and west gallery were added. Inside the church are well-preserved medieval roofs, and a tomb recess containing an effigy dating from the 14th century.
