Lamport is a village and civil parish in the Daventry district of the county of Northamptonshire, England. The village is on the A508, about 8 miles (13 km) south of Market Harborough and 8 miles (13 km) north of Northampton. Nearby is Lamport Hall. At the time of the 2001 census, the parish's population was 207 people,[1] including Hanging Houghton and increasing to 225 at the 2011 Census.[2]

Between 1859 and 1960, the village was served by Lamport railway station just north of the village running trains south to Northampton and north to Market Harborough. This is now part of the heritage Northampton & Lamport Railway.

The parish Church of All Saints is a Grade I listed building.

The Carnegie Medal-winning children's author Denys Watkins-Pitchford was born in Lamport.[3]
