From Victoria County History (1927)

The Village

The village lies on the A413 road from Towcester to Buckingham.

There are several 17th-century cottages and houses in the village, some timber-framed and some of stone, with thatched or tiled roofs. The manor-house is a 17th-century house, originally built of stone, but it has now been refronted in brick. Some of the original mullioned windows remain.

There is a Wesleyan chapel, built in 1828, at Duck End, close to the churchyard.

About half a mile north-west of the village lies Stockholt Farm, all that remains of the once important manor and district of Stockholt. As its name would imply, it was that wooded part of Akeley which extended into Whittlewood Forest, and was probably included in the woodland for 806 swine which appertained to Akeley Manor in 1086.


Plans have been drawn up for a new church building in the churchyard on the former side of the church. The former Victorian church was unfortunately demolished in 1980. Planning Consent has been received by the County, including a Faculty from the Diocese. The total costs are estimated to be between £400,000 and £500,000 depending on inflation correction. Any financial contributions to the new building will be greatly appreciated.
