Stretton under Fosse

Stretton-under-Fosse

Stretton-under-Fosse is a village and civil parish in the English county of Warwickshire. In 2001 its population was recorded as 185.

Stretton is located some half a mile east of the ancient Fosse Way, and just south of the M6 motorway upon the B4027 road between Brinklow to the south, and Pailton and Lutterworth to the north-east. It is part of borough of Rugby and is located around seven miles north-west of the town of Rugby.

The village contains a number of old cottages along its main street. Just outside Stretton is an old manor house Newbold Revel, which is now used as a training college for prison officers.

Confusingly, another village in Warwickshire, Stretton-on-Fosse has a very similar name. The latter is located at the other end of the county.
