Sawbridge is a tiny hamlet in Warwickshire, England. It is 4 km north-west of Daventry and 8 km south of Rugby. It is within the civil parish of Wolfhampcote, under which population details can be found. The Grand Union Canal and Rains Brook run nearby as did the now-defunct Great Central main line railway track. Sawbridge does not have two of the most common features of the English village, a public house or a church. It does, however, have a telephone box. In 1689, an old Roman water well was discovered in the village which contained a dozen or so Roman urns.

In the twelfth century Sawbridge was held by Thorney Abbey; a decree of Henry I survives ordering the tenant to restore the manor to the Abbot of Thorney, "and do not let me hear any complaint about injustice".
