Misson is a village in Nottinghamshire, England. It is located 12 miles north of Retford, and not directly accessible from the rest of Nottinghamshire. Misson Springs, which lie north of the village itself, is the northernmost place within the county. According to the 2001 census it had a population of 698, increasing to 711 at the 2011 census.
The place-name Misson is possibly a derivative of an Old English word, mos, 'moss, marsh, bog', hence 'mossy or marshy place'. Alternatively the name may contain Old Norse mysni, 'a water-plant’, perhaps the water-arum.
