Spion Kop is a small residential and former industrial area in Nottinghamshire, England stretching for a few hundred yards on both sides of the main A60 road surrounded by open farmland.

It is located about a mile to the south of Warsop on the A60, Mansfield Road. It is a modern settlement named after the Battle of Spion Kop which took place during the Second Boer War in Natal, South Africa in January 1900.
