Welcome

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.

It is with a great deal of regret that as a result of the Coronavirus we have decided to cancel this year's Fete, scheduled for 13 June. It seems the Fete would land at the peak of the predicted number of infections and that social distancing and rules around gatherings will still be in force and we do not want to put any villagers or visitors at risk.  Please follow us on Instagram and keep an eye out on our website for other online events which we'll be holding in the meantime.  Any ideas welcome!

Cream Teas August Bank Holiday

Regrettably we have had to cancel the teas on 9 & 10 May. However please still come and enjoy the August bank holiday weekend with a famous Nether Winchendon Cream Tea. You'll get a massive scone, a ginormous piece of cake and as much tea or coffee as you want, served at our picturesque church 2.30-5pm. This year they'll just be held on Sunday 30 & Monday 31 August 2020.  We look forward to seeing you then!
