Lowick is a village and civil parish forming part of the district of East Northamptonshire, England, about 2 miles (3.2 km) north-west of Thrapston. It appears in the Domesday Book as Luhwik, and later as Lofwyk and in 1167 as Luffewich. The name derives from Old English "Luhha's or Luffa's dwelling place", wic being cognate to vicus in Latin. At the time of the 2011 census, the parish's population was 298 people.

Buildings

Drayton House is 1 mile (1.6 km) south-west of the village.

St Peter's Church was built by the Greene family of Drayton between the late fourteenth and early fifteenth centuries. The former school building in Drayton Road was built by Sir John Germaine and his wife and dates from 1717-25.

The George Eliot book Middlemarch was written, at least in part, in the village's old rectory, which is mentioned in the book itself.
