Great Doddington is a village and civil parish in Northamptonshiremarker in the United Kingdommarker, close to Wellingboroughmarker and just off the A45. At the time of the 2001 census, the parish's population was 1,061 people.


The name Dodda's Tun probably refers to an Anglo-Saxon leader 'Dodda' establishing a stronghold in the strategic position overlooking the Nene Valleymarker. Domesday Book records the principal landowner as Judith, widow of Waltheof II, Earl of Northumbria.

The Church of England St Nicholas Church dates back to Norman days and has a square tower and four 15th century misericords. The village contains a pub, hairdresser, a village shop, a post office and two churches, St Nicholas' and a United Reformed Church.

The civil parish contains two wards.
