Wynford Eagle is a hamlet and small parish in Dorset, anciently in the hundred of Tollerford, and now in the District of West Dorset, 1.4 miles to the south west of Maiden Newton and 7.5 miles to the north west of Dorchester.

The parish contains barrows, and Roman remains have been unearthed here, including mosaic pavements, which have led to its identification as a villa site.

The name Eagle commemorates the mediaeval lords, the family de l'Aigle (de Aquila).
