Stretton-under-Fosse is a village and civil parish in the county of Warwickshire. In 2011 the population was 234.

The village contains a number of old cottages along its main street.  Just outside Stretton is an old manor house, Newbold Revel which was built in 1716, which is now used as a training college for prison officers.  Nearby is the Oxford Canal and a canal arm leading to Stretton Wharf.

Stretton means “settlement on a Roman Road” in this case the Fosse Way.

A brick built inn, the Union Jack (formerly the Farriers), had the date 1895 under a wooden central gable. It closed in 2002 and has since been demolished.

The Congregational Chapel on Main Street was founded in 1789 and accommodates 300 people, it also has a burial ground attached which is no longer in use
