Standon is a village and civil parish in Hertfordshire, England. The parish includes the adjoining village of Puckeridge. The village church of St Mary has Saxon origins with much Victorian restoration.

The Prime Meridian passes to the west of Standon.

The place-name is first attested in a Saxon charter of 944-6 AD and means 'stony hill'.
