Homer is a small village in Shropshire, England, north of the town of Much Wenlock. The name first appears in the 14th century as "Honemor". Originally common land called Homer Wood, the settlement developed from squatters' cottages encroaching on the common during the 17th century. During the 19th century it served as accommodation for quarrymen and farm labourers. The village expanded in the later 20th century with the construction of modern houses.
