Stanwick St John is a village, civil parish, former manor and ecclesiastical parish in the Richmondshire district of North Yorkshire, (formerly "North Riding" of Yorkshire), England. It is situated between the towns of Darlington and Richmond, close to Scotch Corner and the remains of the Roman fort and bridge at Piercebridge.

Prior to the nationwide municipal reorganization of 1974, Stanwick St. John was part of Richmond Rural District. Historically, it was an ecclesiastical parish in the Gilling West Wapentake.
