Silverstone is a village and civil parish in Northamptonshire, England, perhaps best known for its race circuit. It is about 4mi from Towcester on the former A43 main road, 10mi from the M1 motorway junction 15A and about 12mi from the M40 motorway junction 10, Northampton, Milton Keynes and Banbury. The population of the civil parish at the 2017 census was 2,176. The A43 now bypasses to the south-east of the village, between the village and the race circuit.HistoryThe village is listed in the Domesday Book.In the Middle Ages, the village trade was primarily in timber from the surrounding Whittlewood forest through the use of coppicing. Linnell Brothers still operate a woodyard to this day.On the north side of the parish churchyard are the remains of medieval fish ponds.Parish churchSilverstone had a chapel by AD 1200. In about 1780 the mediaeval building was replaced by a Georgian one, which was enlarged by the addition of a chancel in 1841 and a north aisle and vestry in 1852. The entire church was demolished in the 1880s and replaced by the present Church of England parish church of Saint Michael, which is a Gothic Revival building designed by JP St Aubyn and completed in 1884.
