Ecton is a village and civil parish in North Northamptonshire. The village is just east of Northampton, just off the A4500 road and was one of the first villages in Northamptonshire to be given conservation status.

Ecton has two public houses: The World's End which was refurbished and extended in 2006, and The Three Horseshoes, also refurbished in April 2011. The World's End is at the edge of the village on the A4500, and The Three Horseshoes is in the centre of the village. The Three Horseshoes offers traditional pub games including skittles, darts and cribbage.

The Church of England parish church of Saint Mary Magdalene is just off the High Street and dates from the 13th century. Two former chapels, one off the High Street and the other in West Street, have been converted to residential properties.
