Hanslope is located midway between M1, Junctions 14 and 15, and midway between M1 and A5
From M1 J14 it is about 15 minutes via Newport Pagnell, and about 20 minutes from J15 via Roade and Hartwell.

  It is also sits centrally between the heart of Northampton and Milton Keynes, to the north and south, and the towns of Newport Pagnell and Stony Stratford, east and west.

 

From whichever direction, the spire of St James the Great will be a marker!
It's the tallest structure for miles around. The Hall is very close by
(And if it looks familiar, the spire forms the basis for the HaMeX Events logo)
