Northwell is a ward in the north of Luton, England. The ward is more commonly known as Marsh Farm, but this also includes parts of Sundon Park and Bramingham. The area is home to one of Luton's high schools, Lea Manor, and the area is also next to Waulud's Bank, an ancient Neolithic Henge.

The area is mainly built up residential, but the source of the River Lea is close by and the ward borders the Great Bramingham Wood, classified by The Woodland Trust as an ancient woodland (over 400 years old - possibly longer).
