Newport Pagnell was a rural district in the administrative county of Buckinghamshire, England, from 1894 to 1974. The rural district took over the responsibilities of the disbanded Newport Pagnell Rural Sanitary District. It was named after Newport Pagnell but from 1897 did not include the town as the new authority of Newport Pagnell Urban District had been created to which the town was assigned.
