Clipston is a village and civil parish that is administered as part of the Daventry district of Northamptonshire in England. The town of Market Harborough is much nearer, about 4 miles (6.4 km) north-east and so the village may be regarded as an economic satellite of that town rather than Daventry. At the time of the 2001 census, the parish had a population of 613 people.[1]

Buildings and facilities[edit]

All Saints Church

All Saints Church is a Grade I listed building, dating from the early 13th century. There are many 17th and 18th century monuments to the Buswell family of London merchants.[2]

The Baptist Chapel of 1803 has a front by Edmund Francis Law of 1864.[2]

The school and hospital west of the church dates from 1667-73.[2]

Clipston has a pub The Bull's Head.

There is a village hall and a green.

Between 1859 and 1960 the village was served by Clipston and Oxendon railway station about 3 miles north-east of the village and running trains between Northampton in the south and Market Harborough in the north.
