Kimcote and Walton is a parish situated in Leicestershire, approximately 4 miles north east of Lutterworth. The population of the civil parish at the 2011 census was 600.[1] The parish includes the villages of Kimcote and Walton (historically also known as Walton in Knaptoft). All Saints Parish Church is situated in Kimcote. Walton once had a church but it was defunct in about 1630. Walton still has a Baptist Chapel and a Public House, the Dog and Gun.

The parish was created in 1898 from the merger of the civil parishes on Kimcote and Walton in Knaptoft.[2]

The parish was the base for many stockingers[3] during the 19th century.
