The name Napton means by derivation the village on the hill top, from Anglo-Saxon “cnaepp”, a hill top, and tun, a homestead or village; it is Neptone in the Domesday Book.

The church of St Lawrence is a Grade II listed building and stands on the summit of Napton Hill in the middle of a small churchyard to the north of the village. A local legend tells us, that the church was to have been built where the present village green is located. However, the stones which lay there ready for building were found to have been taken overnight to the top of the hill, and as a consequence the builders decided to erect the church where the Spirits had dictated.
