Preston-on-Stour is a village and parish in north-east Gloucestershire, adjacent to the Warwickshire border. It is located some 2½ miles south of Stratford-on-Avon in the latter county. As the village name suggests the River Stour flows along its eastern fringe and the A3400 road runs about half-a-mile east. The village church is dedicated to Saint Mary.[1] The village did have an Infant and Junior School but this closed in 1974.[2] The children's television show the Teletubbies was filmed about 1¼ miles south of the village.
