Halford is a village and civil parish about 3 miles (5 km) north of Shipston-on-Stour in Warwickshire. The village is where the Fosse Way Roman road (now the A429 road) crosses the River Stour. The 2011 Census recorded the parish's population as 341.[1]

By the river are the earthworks and buried remains of Halford Castle, a motte castle believed to be the predecessor of the present manor house.[2]
