The canalside Navigation pub, adjacent to a small marina, serves food and is a pleasant one mile countryside walk away. The village has good road links being conveniently located close to the towns of Stony Stratford (approximately three miles), Newport Pagnell (approximately four miles), Central Milton Keynes (approximately seven miles) with it's mainline railway station with 30 minute train into Euston, and Wolverton (approximately three miles) again with a mainline railway station and a 24 hour Tesco.
