Weston-on-Avon is a village now in Warwickshire, England. It is about 3 miles (5 km) south-west of the town of Stratford-upon-Avon.

In 1894 the Warwickshire part of the parish of Welford-on-Avon became the separate parish of Milcote, 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.
