Willington is a village and civil parish located in the English county of Bedfordshire. It is west of Moggerhanger on the road from Sandy to Bedford. The village is recorded in the Domesday Book as Welitone and as Wilitona in c. 1150, from Old English tun (homestead) among the willows, and is part of the ancient hundred of Wixamtree.
Willington is home to 16th century Willington Dovecote & Stables, both now owned by the National Trust. In addition, it is home to The Danish Camp, a restaurant set along the cycle route which holds an annual fireworks display on bonfire night (5th of November). This is also the location of an ancient moated site. Willington used to have a railway station on the Sandy to Bedford railway line, now part of the NCR 51 national cycle route.
