Naughton is a village and former civil parish, now in the civil parish of Nedging-with-Naughton, in the Babergh district, in the county of Suffolk, England.[1] It is 10 miles (16 km) north-west of Ipswich and 7 miles (11 km) south-west of Stowmarket. It was historically within the Cosford Hundred of Suffolk.[2] The civil parish was merged with Nedging in 1935 to create Nedging-with-Naughton.[3] In 1931 the civil parish had a population of 98.[4]

Naughton is formed from the junction of two roads, the Whatfield Road which comes in from the south-west and heads north to Nedging Tye and New Road which comes in from the south-east. St. Mary's church is a 14th-century flint built church stands at the centre of the village, just west of this junction.
