Overview

St James Place

A new development of three and four bedroom homes in Hanslope.

The Buckinghamshire village of Hanslope is about 4 miles west northwest of Newport Pagnell, 4 miles north of Stony Stratford, and 8 miles north of Central Milton Keynes.

Hanslope was a centre of Buckinghamshire lacemaking in the 19th Century. Hanslope lace was noted as being particularly fine, and in 1862 about 500 women and children in the parish were employed making pillow lace. Although the village remains in Buckinghamshire, since 1997 it has been part of the borough of Milton Keynes and is in the parliamentary Milton Keynes North constituency.

The village benefits from a local convenience store, a post office; a butchers; a newsagent/coffee shop - in a quaint little building that used to be the telephone exchange; a flower shop; Hanslope Wines and the Crispy Duck takeaway. It has its own football team, cricket club and bowls team, as well a numerous clubs and societies, a Scout and Guide group and its own website (www.hanslope.org.uk).

There are three pubs in the village, The Watts Arms has stood in its position looking down the High Street since 1821. It is named for the Watts family, squires of Hanslope for more than 200 years, one of which built the Village Hall. The others are The Cock Inn in the High Street, opposite the popular working men’s club, and The Globe at Long Street, just to the north of St James Manor.

Just off Market Place, with its thatched Horseshoe cottages, is the Grade I Listed church of St James the Great, originally a Norman building, the 15th century Perpendicular Gothic spire is a prominent feature of the village and can be seen for long distances across the surrounding countryside.

The village primary school has an ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted rating and serves a number of neighbouring villages. For secondary education there are numerous good schools in Milton Keynes and Northampton.

South of the village is Hanslope Park, originally a 15th Century manor house requisitioned by the War Office in 1941. During the Second World War it was the base for the Radio Security Service. The mathematician and cryptologist Alan Turing, more famously having worked at nearby Bletchley Park was here in the latter part of the War working on secure speech “scrambling”. Today government uses it for research and the production communications systems.
