Nanpantan is a small village in the Charnwood borough of Leicestershire, England.[1] It is located in the south-west of the town of Loughborough, but the village is slightly separated from the main built-up area of Loughborough. It is also the site of the Nanpantan Reservoir.

The first edge rails used in a wagonway were on the Charnwood Forest Canal, in the section between Nanpantan and Loughborough.

There is a small church here: Saint Mary in Charnwood, which was originally built as a mission room by the owner of Nanpantan Hall in 1888. After some years as a chapel of ease to the ecclesiastical parish of Emmanuel, Loughborough, Saint Mary in Charnwood became a parish in its own right, on 1 January 2015.[2]
