After the Norman Conquest of England, William the Conqueror granted the Manor of Bucknell to Robert D'Oyly. In 1300 the Lord of the Manor of Bucknell was Sir Robert d'Amory, father of Roger d'Amory. The present manor house was built in the 17th century, but mostly rebuilt in the 19th century.
The Church of England parish church of Saint Peter has a Norman tower. The nave and chancel were enlarged in the 13th century in the Early English Gothic style. In the 15th century the bell stage was added to the bell tower and the Perpendicular Gothic clerestory was added to the nave. The church's turret clock is of unknown date, but appears to be late 17th or early 18th century.
There is a water tower at Trow Pool, just off the road between Bucknell and Middleton Stoney, very near where that road crosses the M40 motorway. It was built in 1909 and is a Grade II listed building. The arches at the base may be compared with those of the nearby, but much older, Chesterton Windmill.
