Fenny Drayton (formerly Drayton-in-the-Clay) is a village in Leicestershire, England, in the district of Hinckley and Bosworth. It is near to the county border of Warwickshire and has a Coventry (Warwickshire) postcode. The village is just off the A444 road, an old Roman road, north of Nuneaton close to its crossroads with the A5 (the Roman road called Watling Street). The hamlet is also crossed by another Roman road, and is found at the end of the scenic country lane of the Fenn Lanes. It is four miles from the village of Stoke Golding, where King Henry VII was crowned immediately after the Battle of Bosworth Field in 1485. The reinterment of King Richard III mortal remains on 21st March 2015 will start along the Fenn Lanes near to the village of Fenny Drayton.
