Northall is a hamlet in the civil parish of Edlesborough Northall and Dagnall, in Buckinghamshire, England.

This large hamlet straddles the A4146 road halfway between Edlesborough and Billington, Bedfordshire. It has one large Baptist chapel which is still in use. The hamlet has one public house 'The Swan'. An old 16th century public house 'the Village Green' was recently converted to a private house.

The village was formerly part of the Ashridge Estate of the Earls and Dukes of Bridgwater. Like nearby Slapton it has a few very high gabled cottages, with thickly latticed window panes, which are indicative of having been designed by the architect retained by the estate in the 19th century.

The hamlet contains some recently built houses, but most houses are predominantly 19th century.
