Long Buckby is a large village and civil parish in Northamptonshire, England, midway between Northampton and Rugby. In the 2011 census the parish of Long Buckby (which includes the hamlet of Long Buckby Wharf) had a population of exactly 4,000. It is a part of the Daventry district. In the local elections of 2007 the Conservatives retained the seat but with a lesser majority than previous elections.HistoryLong Buckby has a history going back approximately 1,200 years to the Vikings when all of northern, central and eastern England came under the Danelaw. The mound remaining of a castle built by Sahir de Quincy in the 12th century remains. The village name is of Nordic origin, with 'by' meaning settlement or village while 'Buck' is derived from 'Bec' (pronounced 'becker' in old Norse) for stream/brook. The village is recorded in the Domesday Book as Buchebei, its affix possibly coming at a later date in reference to the length of the village.The village once had a thriving shoemaking industry but is now mainly a residential village. The village offers a wide range of amenities and services to its residents, including a doctor's surgery, two dentists, four churches, two schools, a public library, a veterinary surgery, a boarding cattery, a post office, a community centre and Long Buckby Mill Park Nature Reserve. There are two (previously three) pubs in the village. Local shops include two grocery stores, a butchers, several hairdressers, a newsagent, card and gift shop, chemist and a wide range of restaurants and take-aways.
