Denton is a small village and civil parish on the A428 road about 6 miles (10 km) south-east of Northampton. It has a pub, the Red Lion, a village hall, a Church of England parish church and a primary school.
The interior of the church is decorated with biblical murals by the Northampton artist, Henry Bird. Plans were made for the works in 1960 and they were painted from February 1975 until the summer of 1976. They are on 16 panels with 31 life-size figures, many based on local people.
