About Us

Welcome to Great Oxendon!


Great Oxendon is a linear village and civil parish in the Daventry district of the county of Northamptonshire in England.

At the time of the 2001 census, the parish’s population was 307 people, increasing to 331 at the 2011 Census.

Its eastern end is on the A508 road from Market Harborough to Northampton but most of the village is at 90° to the main road’s north-south direction.

There are many lovely walks around the Great Oxendon area. The former railway tunnel at Great Oxendon is now open as part of the Brampton Valley Way.

Surrounding the village is beautiful rolling farmland with the town of Market Harborough just two miles to the north where there is an excellent selection of shops, restaurants and hotels.  There is an excellent train service from Market Harborough to both Luton Airport and the St Pancras International Train Station in London (one hour)  as well as to major cities in the North.

The village is well served by the road network with the main A508 running from Northampton to Market Harborough passing through its centre and a regular bus service to Market Harborough, Leicester and Northampton.  The road allows good vehicle access to the A14, a few miles to the south providing links to the M1 and M6 to the west and A1 and M11 to the east
