Welcome to the village of Grafton Regis website.
Grafton Regis is a small but historic village in the south of the county
of Northamptonshire, in the East Midlands area of England. We are
located midway between the towns of Milton Keynes to the south and
Northampton to the north, and close to the Grand Union Canal.
Although the village is very small, with a population of around 100, we
have major historical links. In the 12th and 13th centuries, Grafton
belonged to the Abbey of Grestain in France, and the Woodville family
came to live here. In the 15th century, Elizabeth Woodville, the Queen
of Edward IV, was born and was married here. In the 16th century, Henry
VIII spent most of the summers of his reign in Grafton and expanded the
manor house into a palace.
