Picturesque and atmospheric, Quainton boasts a large village green, duck pond and an old windmill. It is adorned with evocative cottages and gabled almshouses. The local church dates to the 14th century. Quainton Hill is a 600 ft hill reputedly inhabited by fairies and goblins and on an old Roman road called Gipsy Lane is the grave of a gipsy king. Railway buffs flock to the town’s station where the local railway preservation society shows off its steam locos.
