Tottington is a deserted village and civil parish in the English county of Norfolk. It is situated some 10 km north of the town of Thetford and 40 km south-west of the city of Norwich.
The village became deserted when it was taken over by the British Army during the Second World War as part of the Stanford Battle Area, an infantry training area that is still in use today. The village and the parish are within a prohibited area and access is not allowed without special permission from the Army.
The civil parish has an area of 13.12 km² and in the 2001 census had no inhabitants. For the purposes of local government, the parish falls within the district of Breckland.
