Knotting is a small village in Bedfordshire, located near the border with Northamptonshire. Nearby places are, Sharnbrook, Podington, Odell, Melchbourne, Yielden, Newton Bromswold, Souldrop and Rushden over the border in Northamptonshire.
The parish was covered by the 2001 UK Census but was combined with neighbouring Souldrop. In 2001, there was a combined population of 269 people - in 110 households. In 1831, there were just 135 inhabitants of Knotting alone, therefore it is possible that the population has not really altered.
The Parish Church is partly of 12th century Norman construction, including a chancel arch with carved decoration, and is dedicated to St Margaret. The registers date from 1592 and many of these are deposited at the Bedfordshire and Luton Archives and Records Service. The church was vested with the Churches Conservation Trust on 1 April 2009.
