A Brief Overview of Drayton Parslow:
The village, with its 600 inhabitants is situated between Aylesbury, Milton Keynes and Buckingham, and approximately six miles from Winslow, Bletchley, Wing and Leighton Buzzard. It falls within the administrative district of Aylesbury Vale. Drayton has a peaceful, rural atmosphere.
There is one public house (The Three Horseshoes), an Anglican Church and Baptist Chapel, a new village hall (Greenacre Hall), a Sports and Social Club, and a recreation field with playground and cricket pitch.
Early years’ education is provided by the village Pre-School and Infant School. After their first three years at the village school, children move to the nearby villages of Swanbourne or Stewkley for Years 4-7 education.
Today only two crops are grown in the village - wheat and rapeseed. Kingsland Farm, at the end of New Road, is one of the few remaining working farms. Cattle are no longer kept in the village, although Kingsacre Farm near Drayton Crossroads keeps several hundred sheep. Sheepdog trials are held there several times a year. Many families keep horses, and there are livery stables in the village.
Every August the Village Produce Association organises a popular Village Show, complete with brass band, animal displays, stalls, competitions and family entertainment.
Traditional Victorian buildings, to be found in all corners of the village, are built in red brick often with inlaid brick patterns. Holy Trinity church is the oldest building in the village. Part of Drayton Parslow is a conservation area.
