Welcome to Quainton

Welcome to Quainton and welcome to the Quainton Business Directory. Quainton is a picturesque village easily accessible from throughout the Midlands and Thames Valley. We are north-west of Aylesbury, south of Milton Keynes, and east of Oxford, and lie almost on the edge of Buckinghamshire's border with Oxfordshire.

Our attractive village centre boasts a celebrated village green and landmark renovated windmill, as well as the remaining pillar of a 14th century cross. The village church of St Mary and the Holy Cross also dates from the 14th century. Of the current population of approximately 1500 people, many commute to London, Aylesbury & Milton Keynes, but many also make the most of advances in technology to 'home-work' and commute only when necessary. Small businesses thrive, and it is still a community where most faces are recognised and welcomed.

The community supports many local clubs and societies. There are thriving football teams at Quainton and at Grendon Underwood (and amateur dramatics is also shared between the two villages); the local Memorial Hall was completely rebuilt in 2005 to a fine, modern and spacious design (with significant backing from, amongst others, the Village Society), and the Railway Society is now based in one of the premier steam railway venues in the country - the Bucks Railway Centre on Station Road. At the heart of the village, Quainton Church of England School welcomes children from 4-11 from Quainton and beyond, and the energetic parish council meets at least once a month in the Committee Rooms of the Memorial Hall.
