Tredington is a village and civil parish on the River Stour in Warwickshire, England. The village is 2 miles (3 km) north of Shipston-on-Stour. The civil parish includes the village of Newbold on Stour and hamlets of Armscote, Blackwell and Darlingscott. The 2011 Census recorded the parish population as 1,422.[1]

Tredington civil parish was part of Worcestershire until 1931.[citation needed]

The River Stour runs through Tredington, and it was here that Geoff Crabtree caught the second largest pike ever to have been netted in the UK, weighing in at 45 lb 7oz (20.6 kg), as reported in the July 2007 edition of Angler's Mail.


Parish church[edit]

The oldest parts of the Church of England parish church of St Gregory are Anglo-Danish, built around AD 1000. The building has subsequent phases of work from the 12th, 14th, 15th and 17th or 18th centuries. The building was restored in the 19th century. The west tower is 14th-century and has a tall spire.[2] The church is a Grade I listed building.[3]

The west tower has a ring of six bells. George Purdue of Taunton, Somerset cast the third, fourth and tenor bells in 1622. Robert Atton of Buckingham cast the fifth bell in 1624. Matthew I Bagley of Chacombe, Northamptonshire cast the treble bell in 1683. G Mears and Company of the Whitechapel Bell Foundry in London cast the second bell in 1858.[4]

Quaker arrest[edit]

In the years after the Restoration, Nonconformist religious groups were suppressed, including Quakers. Quaker leader George Fox was arrested on a visit to Tredington in 1673.[5]


Tredington had an 18th-century pub, the White Lion.[6][7] (Closed 2019)

Newbold and Tredington primary school is in Tredington.[8]

Tredington no longer has a village shop or filling station.[citation needed]

Tredington previously had a Little Chef restaurant, until this was taken over by Channings Diner (circa 1997).
