Whaddon is situated very close to Milton Keynes.
Standing close to the boundary between Milton Keynes and Aylesbury Vale, the village can be traced back to Anglo-Saxon times and surrounding elements back to Roman settlements. The village name is Anglo Saxon in origin, and means 'hill where wheat is grown’. There is a 15th century village pub, the New Lowndes Arms, which offers accommodation and a restaurant with an extensive menu. (Having visited this fine establishment last night, Friday 18th May, I can certainly vouch for the excellent food, friendly staff and amazing variety of Gins available!).
