Pitsford is a village in the Daventry district of the non-metropolitan county of Northamptonshire in the United Kingdom.

Pitsford Hall is home to Northamptonshire Grammar School which runs Pitsford Hall weather station. Ironstone is quarried at Pitsford and was formerly transported by rail. The railway line is now part of the preserved Northampton & Lamport Railway which has its headquarters at Pitsford and Brampton railway station. Nearby is Pitsford Reservoir which is used for fishing and sailing as well as storing water for the local area.

Henry Watkin, the Utopian socialist, was born in the village in 1824.
