Drayton is a village in Worcestershire, England.

The Belne Brook, which originates in the Clent Hills and is a tributary of the River Stour, flows through Belbroughton, about a mile upstream, and through Drayton. There used to be water-powered forges in the area, involved in scythe-making.[1] There was once a water-mill here: there is still a mill-pond,[1] a mill building (which now houses local businesses), and nineteenth-century terrace housing, all of which is evidence of the former industry here.
