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. Its church of St. Peter and St. Clare was built in the 14th century. Fenny Compton is small but had two stations, one on the Great Western Railway route from Oxford to Birmingham, the other being on the [1]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 village has a doctor's consulting-room, a small general store, and two pubs. The old part of the village has many notable buildings including Knotts Cottage, The Red House, The Old School House and The Hollies.

Its name comes from the Anglo-Saxon Fennig Cumbtūn = "marshy farmstead in a valley".
