Calverton is a village in Nottinghamshire, England, situated approximately 8 miles from Nottingham.

The inventor of the stocking frame, William Lee, was born here in the 16th century. Other famous people with connections to this village are Christopher Dean (Ice Skater) and Mick Waitt (coach of the New Zealand soccer team 2003).

Originally a small rural village, Calverton greatly expanded after the opening of Calverton Colliery in 1953. The Colliery was closed by British Coal in 1994 but reopened soon after under the ownership of RJB Mining. The colliery finally closed in late 1999 by which time it was no longer the principal employer in the village. The buildings were demolished in February 2000.

Shane Meadows' 1999 film A Room for Romeo Brass was filmed in Calverton.
