Fenny Compton is a village and parish in Warwickshire, England, about eight miles north of Banbury.
In the 2001 census the parish had a population of 797, increasing to 808 at the 2011 census. Its name comes from the Anglo-Saxon Fennig Cumbtūn meaning “marshy farmstead in a valley”.
The Parish church of St. Peter and St. Clare was built in the 14th century and is a Grade II listed building.
The village has a doctor’s surgery, a small Co-op store, a pub located centrally and on the outskirts next to the Oxford Canal. The old part of the village has many notable buildings including the Woad House, Knotts Cottage, The Red House, The Old School House and The Hollies.
Fenny Compton is small but had two stations, one on the Great Western Railway route from Oxford to Birmingham, the other on the Stratford-upon-Avon and Midland Junction Railway route from Bicester to Broom. The GWR station and SMJ station were built alongside each other controlled by a joint signal box. The railway still runs through the parish, though the station has long gone. Today, the line from DM Kineton branches off the Chiltern main line between Banbury and Leamington Spa.
