Mostly residential with a number of small shops, centralised around the Post Office and general stores on the village square. Three public houses service the village, along with one modern red brick primary school and two churches, the smaller of Baptist denomination and the larger St. Leonard's church.
St. Leonard's church was constructed in 1832 and is of a unconventional white plaster design. Its bell tower has not been safe to regulary ring in since the late eighties, with the bells now replaced by a timed recording.
The nearest significant towns to Woore are Market Drayton and Whitchurch. The A51 and A525 roads run through the village and the village's name means "boundary" in ancient celtic and this fits nicely with the fact that it is on the boundary with Cheshire, an English county to the north of Shropshire.
