Leckhampstead is a village and civil parish in the Aylesbury Vale district of Buckinghamshire, England. It is near the boundary with Northamptonshire, about 3 miles (5 km) north east of Buckingham, and west of Milton Keynes. The village is on the River Leck, a tributary of the River Great Ouse.
In the middle of the 16th century the village was split into two halves, Leckhampstead Magna and Leckhampstead Parva, with the foundation of a manor house in the latter. However within a couple of centuries the two halves were joined up again when the incumbent of Leckhampstead Magna inherited Leckhampstead Parva.
