Woodwalton – in Huntingdonshire (now part of Cambridgeshire), England – is a village near Abbots Ripton south west of Ramsey. The civil parish of Wood Walton is spread over a wide area, the main village dissected by the East Coast Main Line. To the north of the village in the area known as "Church End" stands the (now redundant) parish church of St Andrew.

Further north are the earthworks of Woodwalton Castle, a motte-and-bailey castle which formerly held the manor of the parish.[1] In 1886 a hoard of Roman coins was dug up in the parish.[2] The village stands at the edge of Woodwalton Fen, an area of special scientific interest.[1]
