Daventry is a local government district in Northamptonshire, England. Its council is based in the town of Daventry.

The district was created on 1 April 1974, under the Local Government Act 1972, by a merger of the historic municipal borough of Daventry with the Daventry Rural District and most of the Brixworth Rural District. The town of Daventry became an unparished area with Charter Trustees and remained so until 2003 when a civil parish was created, roughly corresponding with the boundaries of the former borough, so allowing Daventry to have its own town council.[1]

At the 2011 Census, the district had a population of 77,843, a little under a third of whom (25,026) lived in the town of Daventry.[2] Other significant settlements include Brixworth, Long Buckby and Weedon Bec. The rest of the district is predominantly rural.
