Stanion is a village and civil parish in North Northamptonshire, England. At the time of 2001 census, the parish's population was 873 people,[1] increasing to 1,252 at the 2011 Census.[2] There is a Church of England primary school.

The village church is dedicated to St Peter.

Within the church there is (as of 2009) a curious antiquity. This is a 7 ft long whalebone, although tradition avers that it is actually part of the skeleton of a Dun Cow. This was a fabled beast from English folklore, and according to various versions of the story the Stanion cow was either killed or died of a broken heart after being tricked by a witch. Graffiti etched onto the bone indicates it dates from the 17th century.[3]

The village of Stanion was shown in the wartime film "Springtime in an English Village (1944)"
