Weston under Lizard is a village in the South Staffordshire district of Staffordshire, England. It constitutes a civil parish with Blymhill, called Blymhill and Weston-under-Lizard. It is known as Weston under Lizard (the name of a hill in nearby Shropshire) to distinguish it from Weston upon Trent. It should not be confused with the village of Weston, to the north east of Stafford.
