Warrington is a hamlet and civil parish[2] in the Borough of Milton Keynes and ceremonial county of Buckinghamshire, England, near Olney and on either side of the A509. It formed part of the parish of Olney until 1866. At the 2011 Census the population of the hamlet was included in the civil parish of Lavendon

The hamlet name is an Old English language word that means 'Wærheard's estate'. It was recorded in the Domesday Book in 1086 as Wardintone.

The hamlet is confused occasionally with Warrington, the town in Cheshire.

It is the most northerly parish of the Borough, of Buckinghamshire and of the South East England Region.
