Naughton is a village located in Suffolk, England.[1] It is 10 miles (16 km) north-west of Ipswich and 7 miles (11 km) south-west of Stowmarket. It lies within the Cosford Hundred of Suffolk. It is often joined with two other villages in the area Nedging-with-Naughton (where the population is also included).

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.
