Thornby is a village and civil parish in the Daventry district of the county of Northamptonshire in England. It has a Manor house. At the time of the 2001 census, the parish's population was 162 people. The village is bisected by the A5199 (formerly A50) road between Northampton and Leicester and about 11 miles (17.7 km) north-west of Northampton town centre. It is about 1½ miles (2½ km) south of a junction with the A14 road which joins the M1 Motorway and M6 junction at Catthorpe with Felixstowe, Suffolk.
Thornby Hall is located off Naseby road and is 17th century, with 19th and 20th century additions, in the Tudor style. The house and grounds are used as a school for young people with severe emotional and behavioural problems, as a result of attachment difficulties which may be rooted in early life trauma.
