Creaton is a village and civil parish in the Daventry district of the county of Northamptonshire in England, about eight miles north west of Northampton and sits on a ridge above a valley. Creaton, together with its attractive surrounding countryside, is set in the heart of what William Blake called “England’s green and pleasant land”.
There are currently around 500 inhabitants. In the centre of the village is a large, sloping green, certainly one of the finest in the county. The church of St Michael and All Angels dates from the 13th century with a low stone tower. On the High Street stands the United Reformed Church. The village possesses an excellent primary school, a Post Office/General Stores and a pub, “The Bricklayers Arms.” On the Brixworth Road is a well-used playing field. The Village Hall is the hub for a variety of activities. On the outskirts of the village there are a Conference Centre, 'Highgate House' (a former 17th century coaching inn) and a few small businesses which provide employment for local people.

Update from Daventry District Council Regarding Creaton Conservation Area Appraisal Consultation:
Please be advised that the current consultation on the draft Creaton conservation area appraisal will continue to run until 5pm 27th April 2020 as arranged.
Responses to the consultation must be received by Daventry District Council in writing by this date, either via post, email or online survey. The online survey and links to the consultation documents can be found on our website at www.daventrydc.gov.uk/conservationareas<http://www.daventrydc.gov.uk/conservationareas>.
However, it is recognised that, due to the current circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak, the capacity for certain members of the public or professional bodies to access copies of the appraisal and submit consultation responses will be limited. Therefore, a further opportunity to comment on the draft appraisal and proposed boundary in the form of a second formal consultation will be made available at a later date. The drop-in session/exhibition for the Creaton conservation area consultation will also be rearranged to take place once it is safe to do so.
We appreciate your patience in this matter, and we will provide up to date information on the further consultation as soon as possible.
