Nythe, Eldene and Liden is a civil parish in the eastern suburbs of the Borough of Swindon, England. In addition to the residential areas of Nythe (in the north), Eldene and Liden (southwest and southeast), the parish includes the Dorcan industrial area. The parish is immediately to the north of the former Municipal Borough of Swindon.

Nythe was originally a tything of the parish of Stratton St. Margaret, and became a new parish in its own right in 2015. It has since expanded to include the settlements of Eldene and Liden to form the present parish.

The Ordnance Survey map of 1948 shows the area as farmland. In the 1960s, as part of Swindon's eastward expansion, the entire area became a privately built housing estate.
