Watford village is an old and attractive settlement positioned just off the A5 Watling Street and offering very good links to the A45, M45 and M1 - indeed it is known nationally for its proximity to Watford Gap Service Station. Supporting a number of local farms, its own church, Thai/Indian restaurant and village hall, residents utilise the neighbouring village of Long Buckby, 2 miles away, for other amenities and facilities to include small grocery stores, primary school, bank, library, hairdresser, chemist, restaurants and take away foods. In addition, Long Buckby has a mainline train station with services to London Euston and Birmingham New Street. For larger shopping, entertainment and leisure facilities the nearest main towns are Rugby and Northampton which can be reached 8 and 12.5 miles away respectively.
