Flore (historically spelt 'Floore') is a village and civil parish in the Daventry district of the county of Northamptonshire in England.

The A45 road divided the upper part of the village from several older, lower streets until a bypass opened on the 15th November 2018. The historical village of Glassthorpe lay in the vicinity.

The population at the 2001 census was 1,221, falling to 1,194 at the 2011 census.

The Grade II listed Flore House was built in 1608 for the Enyon family.

The thatched cottage in Flore called Adams Cottage (location) is said to be the home of the ancestors of John Adams, the second President of the United States of America.[1]
