Iwerne Courtney, also known as Shroton, is a village in the English county of Dorset. It is sited by the small River Iwerne between Hambledon Hill to the south-west and the hills of Cranborne Chase to the east. The name Iwerne Courtney - of which in 1980 author and Dorset resident Roland Gant wrote "I have heard only visitors to Dorset call it Iwerne Courtney"- derives from when the Courtenays (a Devon family ) owned land here, on the Iwerne stream.
