Great Oxendon is a linear village and civil parish in the Daventry district of the county of Northamptonshire in England. At the time of the 2001 census, the parish's population was 307 people.[1]

Its eastern end is on the A508 road from Market Harborough to Northampton but most of the village is at 90° to the main road's north-south direction. The former railway tunnel at Great Oxendon is now open as part of the Brampton Valley Way.

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

Little Oxendon is a deserted medieval village about one mile north of Great Oxendon at grid reference SP730846.
