The village is situated immediately to the south west of Wellingborough on a ridge overlooking the River Nene.
The earliest record of the church dates from the 11th century - its walls and roof are original Norman. Buried within is one of Doddington's famous sons, Sir William de Pateshull, victim of the Black Death which claimed half of the population of the county in the mid-14th century.
Other notable historic buildings include the Old Vicarage, Manor House and Stag's Head public house.
