Woodnewton is a village in Northamptonshire, England. Essentially a pair of parallel streets, the village lies to the north of a small stream, the Willow Brook, in Rockingham Forest. It is in the East Northamptonshire district. At the time of the 2001 census, the parish's population was 442 people, increasing slightly to 450 at the 2011 Census.
Woodnewton is home to 'Clownfest', a fundraising operation inspired by Coco the Clown. There is a woodcarved statue of 'Coco the clown' in the Woodnewton village park. Coco the clown is buried in the graveyard of St Mary's parish church, which is situated to the eastern end of the village. Clownfest raised enough money to pay for the building of the current village hall, which is a central hub for the village.
Other facilities include: Public House, Village hall, Church and a Pottery.
