Geography

Potterspury is on the A5 road, formerly the Roman road of Watling Street, and is located between Towcester six miles to the north and Stony Stratford a mile to the south. The village sits at the edge of Whittlewood Forest, an extensive area of ancient woodland to the west that was part of the original estate of the Duke of Grafton. Much of the ancient woodland is designated an SSSI for protection from development. Parts of the estate are open to the public in the Spring, but there is a notable absence of footpaths and bridleways within the estate itself.

Nearby villages include Wicken, Deanshanger, Grafton Regis, Alderton and Yardley Gobion. Stony Stratford and Towcester offer the nearest substantial shopping areas.

Landmarks

The parish church is dedicated to St Nicholas, and there has been a church on the site since at least 1087, originally granted by Robert de Ferrers, 1st Earl of Derby to Bernard the Scribe.[2]

Facilities

There is a small shop with post office on the High Street near the church, and a Village Hall at the end of the High Street. The village has two pubs and a sports bar, The Talbot on the A5 and The Cock on the High Street and there is a sports and social club at the bottom of Meadow View, where Potterspury FC play their home games[clarification needed]. There is now a spa called Cloud 9 Located on Poundfield road just off the A5 and Potterspury House Restaurant has been added to the same location{{clarify]date=May 2018}}.

Educational provision in the village includes the all-boys' Potterspury Lodge School, which helps children with learning difficulties, and John Hellins Primary School. The latter has about 115 children, aged 4–11. Most leavers go on to Elizabeth Woodville School, formerly Kingsbrook School, in Deanshanger, as their secondary school. John Hellins was a mathematician and astronomer who, as parish priest at Potterspury, founded and taught in the village school.[3]
