Finghall is a village and civil parish in the Richmondshire district of North Yorkshire, England, with a population of 126. It is located south of the A684, about 7 miles west of Bedale and about 4 miles east of Leyburn. The church is dedicated to St. Andrew.

The village pub is the Queen's Head. The willows that line the beck to the north of the village, of which there is a good view from the dining room and terrace of the pub, are said to have inspired Kenneth Grahame to write 'The Wind in the Willows'. (The village to the west is called Newton le Willows.)
