Milton Malsor is a village and civil parish in West Northamptonshire, 4 miles (6.4 km) south of Northampton town centre; junction 15 of the M1 motorway is 2 miles east by road.
There are two pubs: "The Greyhound" in Towcester Road, which has a large restaurant, and "The Compass" in Green Street, a more traditional village pub also offering bar food. The Greyhound is adjacent to the Village Hall and attracts large crowds from Northampton's southern suburbs in summer as it has a large garden area. Both establishments serve good quality real ale with periodic guest bitters.
A shop and former post office and the modern village hall, are both on the High Street opposite the green and War Memorial. The Northampton Hilton Hotel is approximately 1½ miles distant on Watering Lane in the neighbouring village of Collingtree, just off the A45 trunk road. There are several other hotels in the area along the A45 trunk road.
The village has two small industrial estates; the larger on Gayton Road is adjacent, but with no access, to the A43. This is referred to locally as 'Gallifords' reflecting its ownership. The smaller is adjacent to the M1 bridge along Collingtree Road and known as 'Maple Court' alluding to its history. There is an architect's office in the old Rectory and additional modern offices on Towcester Road in the converted Hope Brewery and out buildings.
A mobile library visits the village every two weeks; the nearest local library is at Hunsbury, about a mile north, next to a large Tesco 'Extra' supermarket and petrol station.
