Eynesbury Hardwicke was a civil parish in the Huntingdonshire part of Cambridgeshire, England.

Eynesbury Hardwicke was historically part of Eynesbury parish. That parish was split in two in 1895;[1] the village of Eynesbury was incorporated into the town of St Neots.[2] Eynesbury Hardwicke parish was formed from the remaining 2,641 acres (10.7 km²) of countryside.[1]

Caldecote Manor, Eynesbury Hardwicke House[2] and the site of an abandoned village, Weald,[3] are in the former parish. It did not contain a parish church or settlement[2]—though by the time of its dissolution Eynesbury had expanded into the parish[4]—but it did have a parish council.[5] At the time of the 2001 census, the parish had a population of 1,124.[6]

The civil parish was abolished on 1 April 2010 and the area divided between Abbotsley and St Neots.[7]
