Pailton is a village and civil parish in the Borough of Rugby, Warwickshire, England. Its population in 2001 was recorded as 482, increasing at the 2011 Census to 516. The village was originally known as Pailington.
Pailton is located approximately five miles northwest of Rugby and about five miles southwest of Lutterworth. It lies at a crossroads of three roads, one towards Rugby to the south, one towards Lutterworth to the east, and Nuneaton and Coventry towards the west.
The village had a single pub, namely the White Lion (ceased trading early in 2014); in the past there were as many as three pubs (including The Plough and The Fox), serving as coaching inns. At the crossroads is the village green with a recently restored war memorial. About one mile east of Pailton is a radio station operated by UK National Air Traffic Services and used for measurement and calibration purposes.
The village church of St Denys is built of red brick and dates from 1884.
