Cawston is a civil parish and village close to the south west of Rugby, Warwickshire, on the A4071 (which is in turn just one mile from the M45). The population of the civil parish at the 2011 census was 3,234.

For hundreds of years the village was basically a hamlet and the two settlements remained separate despite Rugby's continued growth. However in 2003-04 a new housing estate, Cawston Grange, was completed all but connecting the two settlements. Cawston Grange Primary School was built at the same time to educate children in the area aged 4-11 and there is a nursery for pre-school children.
