Welford-on-Avon is a village of around 1,800 inhabitants situated some 4 miles (6 km) west-south-west of the town of Stratford-upon-Avon in the county of Warwickshire, England. The village sits within a bend of the River Avon.
In 1894 the Warwickshire part of the parish of Welford-on-Avon became the separate parish of Bickmarsh, and thereafter the remaining area of Welford-on-Avon was wholly in Gloucestershire, until it was transferred to Warwickshire on 1.4.1931.
Welford-on-Avon was part of Marston Sicca Rural District in Gloucestershire. A further explanation will be found under Marston Sicca Rural District where a map of the area is included.
