Weston-Subedge (also written Weston-sub-Edge) is a village and civil parish now in the Cotswold District of Gloucestershire, England, close by the border with Worcestershire (to the west). The village is about 8 miles east of Evesham, and near the village of Willersey.

Weston-Subedge was part of the Pebworth Rural District from 1894 until 1931 when the rural district was broken up. Pebworth RD was made up of four detached parts with parishes in Worcestershire in between them. In the reorganization, some of the parishes were transferred to Worcestershire, but Aston-Subedge and three other parishes were transferred to Campden Rural District.

In a more wide-reaching Gloucestershire reorganization of 1935, Campden RD was disbanded and all its parishes were transferred to the newly-formed and much larger North Cotswold Rural District.
