Latest news

Welcome to the Nether Winchendon village website where you will find information about village life, our history, news, events and links to useful information.

 

The village lies within the Aylesbury Vale district of Buckinghamshire, England, near the border of Oxfordshire, about five miles west of Aylesbury and five miles north-east of Thame.

 

The village name 'Winchendon' originates from Anglo Saxon, meaning 'hill at a bend'. The Winchendon villages were recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Wincandone.

 

For such a small village of about 50 houses and a population of approximately 120, Nether Winchendon is a very active community. St Nicholas Church lies at its heart and is both a lively church and the village meeting place.

  • We're delighted to confirm that the church building is open again for private prayer and reflection.  There will also be monthly services for villagers only, with the first service being held on Sunday 26th July, with Holy Communion at 9.30am. Please see the church page above for more details.

  • There is still a food bank box, collected every Tuesday for Aylesbury - this is in the phone box - so please do donate! 

It was with a great deal of regret that as a result of the Coronavirus we had to cancel this year's Fete.  However the village pulled together to deliver some incredible fundraising activities over the summer - from a plant stall, food stall to book share, alongside virtual wheel of fortunes and a blind auction.  Thank you to all those who have so generously supported these efforts.  All monies raised will be going to support the maintenance of our village church which is so reliant on these funds.

Cream Teas August Bank Holiday

Regrettably it looks like our usual August bank holiday cream teas won't be able to happen this year due to government advice.  Watch this space for other plans that we might put in place instead.
