It is a small and attractive village surrounded by Buckinghamshire countryside with facilities to include a small grocery shop, a village hall, church and a small village school with approximately 40 pupils 4-7 years of age which received an outstanding Ofsted report in 2014. The canalside Navigation pub, adjacent to a small marina, serves food and is a pleasant one mile countryside walk away. The village has good road links being conveniently located close to the towns of Stony Stratford (approximately three miles), Newport Pagnell (approximately four miles), Central Milton Keynes (approximately seven miles) with its mainline railway station with 30 minute train into Euston, and Wolverton (approximately three miles) again with a mainline railway station and a 24 hour Tesco. An ideal village for those looking for countryside living yet close to extensive facilities.
