Quinton is a village and civil parish in South Northamptonshire, England. It is about 5 miles (8.0 km) south of Northampton town centre along the road from Wootton to Hanslope, near Salcey Forest.

Geography[edit]

The parish borders the parishes of Wootton, Hackleton, Hartwell, Ashton, Roade, Courteenhall and Grange Park. The latter housing estate, effectively all but an urban expansion of Northampton, is only 500 yards away across some fields.

Preston Green[edit]

Urban expansion of Northampton was being planned in October 2008 which would absorb the village in its entirety.[3]

Demographics[edit]

The 2001 census shows a population of 194 people, 90 male, 104 female in 72 dwellings.[1] The 2010 population figure is estimated at 214.[2]

Buildings[edit]

The Parish Church is dedicated to St John the Baptist, mostly remodelled in 1801,[4] though the tower is 13th century and there are Norman parts. There is a notable monument to Eleanor Maccalum (d.1909) in the churchyard of terracotta with angels at the head and foot.
