Bainton is a village and civil parish in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England. It is situated approximately 6 miles (10 km) south-west of Driffield on the A614 road.

According to the 2011 UK census, Bainton parish had a population of 334,[1] an increase on the 2001 UK census figure of 282.[2] The parish covers an area of 1,608.08 hectares (3,973.7 acres).[3]

Bainton was served by Bainton railway station on the Selby to Driffield Line between 1890 and 1954.[4]

Bainton Grade I listed Anglican church is dedicated to St Andrew.[5] Pevsner noted that the church was totally rebuilt in the 1330s or 1340s by the rector William de Brocklesby, except for the south-west corner of the chancel with its priest's doorway, which are c.1300. Until 1715 the tower supported a spire. The font is Norman, and the pews 18th century. A tomb to Sir Edmund de Mauley lies in the south aisle; [de Mauley, Steward to Edward II, died at the Battle of Bannockburn in 1314]. The tomb has an ogee canopy, crocketed gable and flying angels holding the soul of Sir Edmund in a napkin. There is also a brass to Roger Godeale, died 1429.[6] A south porch and vestry were added by Henry Wheatley in 1843, and a restoration carried out by "Fowler of Louth" in 1866. The church's listed rectory, south of the church, is of late Georgian period. According to Pevsner a local tradition connects the rectory's coniferous garden with Paxton[6][7] The rectory's coach house and stables are also listed buildings.[8]
