Thorpe Malsor is a village and civil parish 2 miles (3 km) west of Kettering.

The Church of England parish church of All Saints was built late in the 13th and early in the 14th centuries.[2] In 1877 the Gothic Revival architect C.C. Rolfe restored the church,[3] with Harry Hems of Exeter undertaking the carving.[2] All Saints parish is now part of a single benefice with the parishes of Broughton, Cransley and Loddington.[4]

The village well in the middle of the main street was sunk in 1589.[2] Thorpe Malsor Hall is a Jacobean house that was refenestrated in the 18th century and enlarged in 1817.[2]
