Aldwincle is a village and civil parish located in the district of East Northamptonshire, with a population at the time of the 2011 census of 322.[1] It is situated on a bend of the River Nene, 4 miles (6.4 km) to the north of Thrapston.

In 1879, two ecclesiastical parishes, Aldwinkle All Saints and Aldwinkle St Peter merged after the parish church of the former was declared redundant in 1971 and there is a small primary school, Aldwincle Trinity, which was opened five years earlier.

The village rectory was the birthplace of the English poet, John Dryden and English Civil War figure Charles Fleetwood.
