Woodnewton is a village in Northamptonshire, England. Essentially a pair of parallel streets, the village lies to the north of a small stream, the Willow Brook, in Rockingham Forest. It is in the East Northamptonshire district. At the time of the 2001 census, the parish's population was 442 people.
Woodnewton is home to 'Clownfest', a fundraising operation inspired by Coco the Clown. You can see a woodcarved statue of 'Coco the clown' in the Woodnewton village park. Coco the clown is buried in the graveyard of the only village church, which is situated to the eastern end of the village. Clownfest raised enough money to pay for the building of the current village hall which is a central hub for the village.
Other facilities include: Public House, Church and a Pottery.
