Thornborough Village

Thornborough is an idyllic and largely tranquil village located in Aylesbury Vale, about 2 miles east of Buckingham, 12 miles from Milton Keynes and 10 miles from Bletchley. The Parish itself covers a square area of 2392 acres. It is bound to the north by the flood plain of the River Great Ouse, and to the west by the flood plain of Padbury brook. To the east it is bounded to the Parishes of Nash and Great Horwood, and to the South, Padbury. The parish is divided by the A421, Thornborough village to the north, and Coombs hamlet to the south. The rural parish contains a conservation area, a large network of footpaths, several scheduled monuments, and a Community Woodland. The majority of homes are within the village with the remainder in Coombs and outlying farms.

Thornborough has a range of recreational amenities of which the most important is the village playing field with its pavillion. The village greens were registered as common land in 1965. It falls on the Parish Council to manage and act as custodians for these pieces of land, (5 in all). A mostly mown village green and sports field, are provided for enhancing play and sports activities in the village. here is a pond in the centre of the village. It is populated by ducks and moorhens, and historically water voles. Young children feed the ducks, and older children fish occasionally. The Parish Council has  the pond dredged periodically.

The village hall is open to all villagers and other people for hire. It is used by the neighbouring school and also by many clubs and societies. The village hall is owned by the Parish Council and maintained by a charitable trust. one of the smaller village greens is in front of the village hall.
