Egmanton is a small village located one mile south of Tuxford and one mile north of Laxton in Nottinghamshire, England. The name derives from the Old English words for Ecgmund's farm/settlement.

The nearest larger towns are Retford and Newark-on-Trent. It is located approximately 35 metres above sea level.

It is part of the Caunton Ward of the administrative district of Newark and Sherwood District Council and the county of Nottinghamshire. It lies within the Parliamentary constituency of Newark.

Egmanton was mentioned in the Domesday Survey of 1085.

According to the 2001 census it has 254 inhabitants in 101 households [1]. The amenities include an Anglican church, a Methodist chapel, a village hall (formerly the old school), a post office and a pub, 'The Old Plough'.

The main economic activity in the village is farming although there is a depot for a construction company located in Egmanton.
