The village of Lavendon is situated at the very north of Buckinghamshire, close to the borders of Northamptonshire and Bedfordshire. In the past, Lavendon villagers traditionally relied on farming, lace making and the shoe and boot trade but there are now a number of diverse and thriving businesses in the village.
There was a proposed bypass to the north of the village in the 1930’s until a Saxon site was discovered there, although the building of major trunk roads have all had the effect of reducing traffic through Lavendon.
On the wall at St Michael's Church on Northampton Road is a plaque to commemorate the Jarrow march through the village. Parts of the wall were pushed back and rebuilt to widen that stretch of road.
Today the village consists of over 550 homes, a primary school and pre school facilities, a village shop and post office, two pubs/restaurants and a number of other businesses which serve both the local community and export worldwide.
