The village

Grendon is a small village in rural Northamptonshire, England and is found on the borders of Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire - with many houses made of the local limestone; various older thatched houses still survive. The name of the village means "green hill". Today the village remains centred on the hill. As with nearby Earls Barton, the village was once owned by Countess Judith who was the niece of William the Conqueror. The village is mentioned in the Doomsday Book.

The current population (based on the 2011 census) is 544; the village is a popular place to live with commuters to London or Milton Keynes. It is the site of the nineteenth century 'Battle of Grendon'. The village is in two parts which are separated by the brook. The smaller part of the village is shown on maps as "Lower End", whilst the higher (southern) part of the village is located at the top of the (steep) hill - after which the village was originally named.

The village is a friendly place and a great place to live.

You can learn a bit more about the village from our page on Wikipedia - here.
