Tredington is now a small village within the parish of Stoke Orchard near Tewkesbury in Gloucestershire, England. The village has a church and a school but no pubs or shops.

The little church of St. John the Baptist in Tredington is known for its wooden tower, a twelfth-century architectural plan, medieval stone benches, and the fossil of an ichthyosaurus displayed upon the floor of its porch. The steps, base and shaft of the churchyard cross are fourteenth century; the cross is modern.

From 1894 until 1935 Tredington was a separate civil parish within Tewkesbury Rural District. In 1935 it was abolished and the area became part of Stoke Orchard, a neighbouring parish. At the same time the merged parish was transferred to Cheltenham Rural District. Stoke Orchard is now in the Tewkesbury District.
