There is a grand manor house in Lathbury, which in the medieval period belonged to the abbey in Lavendon (since 1272). Following the Dissolution of the Monasteries in 1547 the manor stayed in the hands of the Crown until the Restoration of the Monarchy, when it was given to Christ Church in Oxford.
There was also once a grammar school in Lathbury, founded in the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, supported by Christ Church. The school was pulled down, however, in 1698 and the materials thereof used to repair the ancient rectory.
