Wibtoft - Roman town.

This parish has a tiny village whose name is thought to be of Danish origin (a rarity in Warwickshire). The church of St Mary's retains some medieval stonework.

High Cross, site of the Roman 'Venonae', is nearby and, together with the neighbouring parish of Copston Magna, lies on the site of the old Roman town of Cleychester.

Wibtoft was written 'Wibetot' in the Domesday Book and was held by the Earl of Mellent. Before this it belonged to Ulfric Spot, the founder of Burton Abbey.
