Old Stratford is a village in the south of the English county of Northamptonshire. The population of the village (including Passenham) at the 2011 Census was 1,935. The river Great Ouse forms the boundary with Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes.
It is immediately north of where the Roman road Watling Street crossed the Ouse; just south of this crossing point is the town of Stony Stratford in Milton Keynes. Originally on the junction of the A5, the A422 and the A508, these roads now bypass the village on its northern edge.
The Buckingham Arm of the Grand Union Canal passed through the village but has been disused since 1964. There remains a "Wharf Lane" and signs of the path of the old canal through the village towards Buckingham.
The village has a few local facilities (a pub (currently closed for refurbishment), two motor dealers, a Chinese takeaway, an Indian restaurant and a corner shop), and relies on Stony Stratford and Milton Keynes for a broader range of shops as well as for its medical, financial and other professional needs.
