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.
There is still a food bank box, collected every Tuesday for Aylesbury Food Bank - this is in the phone box - so please do donate!
Please see 'Parish Meeting' above to see the latest election of officers held on 11 January. After 20 years at the helm, the village give their warm thanks to Nigel Cox who stepped down as Chair of the Parish Meeting. Philip Youell now takes over as Chair.
