Quinton is a village and parish in southern Northamptonshire, about five miles south of Northampton town centre. It lies along the road from Wootton to Hanslope, near Salcey Forest.


The civil parish borders those of Wootton, Hackleton, Hartwell, Ashton, Roade, Courteenhall and Grange Park. The latter housing estate, effectively all but an urban expansion of Northampton, is only 500 yards away across nearby fields.

Preston Green

Urban expansion of Northampton was being planned in October 2008 which would absorb the village in its entirety.[1]


The Parish Church is dedicated to St John the Baptist, mostly remodelled in 1801,[2] though the tower is 13th century and there are Norman parts. There is a notable monument to Eleanor Maccalum (d.1909) in the churchyard of terracotta with angels at the head and foot.
