Moreton-in-Marsh is a town in Gloucestershire, England. Morton dervies from 'Farmstead on the Moor', while Marsh is a corruption of march, which means boundary. Moreton use to be located on the boundary of four counties (now three counties).

The town's environs are quite flat and low-lying. During World War II, a large area of this flat land to the east of the town was made into an airfield and used by Wellington Bombers. The former airfield is now the British Fire Service College, where firefighters are trained.

Moreton has a museum devoted to the Wellington Bomber.
