Oxton is a village in Nottinghamshire, England, with a little over 500 residents.

Oxton is located 5 miles west of Southwell, 5 miles north of Lowdham, 10 miles NE of Nottingham and 2 miles NE of Calverton, and lies on the B6386, and is very close to the A6097 trunk road.

Oxton has a church dedicated to St Peter & St Paul, a post office, and two pubs. Oxton also has 2 fords - a small ford (crossing) within the village itself, and a much larger ford on Beanford Lane - often as deep as 1 ft whilst remaining open to all traffic. It is however closed each March, so that the toads found in the swamp-like area which the ford crosses can breed.
