Eaton Socon was a village and civil parish in Bedfordshire. In 1965 the parish was abolished, with the rural part becoming the parish of Staploe (which remained in Bedfordshire), whilst the village was joined with the town of St Neots, on the opposite bank of the river Great Ouse in Huntingdonshire. Subsquently, Huntingdonshire was merged with Cambridgeshire in 1974.
