Little Harrowden is a village and civil parish in Northamptonshire nearly three miles north-west of Wellingborough, off the A509 road. At the time of the 2011 census, the parish's population was 892 people.[1]

The village is one of the longest and narrowest parishes in Northamptonshire and is built around the Church of St Mary the Virgin, which dates back to circa 1190. The parish has a population of between 800-900 and this is spread across various occupations from industrial in the east to farming in the west.

The local primary school has been established for approximately 350 years and, along with the village hall, acts as a focal point in the village. Another focal point of the village is the pub, The Lamb, which is run by Charles Wells.
