  • Boddington Bus Service County Connect

    Northamptonshire's County Connect local bus service comes highly recommended by parishioners - this service will take you from any designated pick-up point to other towns or villages.  The designated pickup points in Boddington are in Upper Boddington opposite the School, and in Lower Boddington by The Carpenters Arms.

    To use the service you have to register first (it is free to register).  You are then given a number which has to be quoted when you book.  The parishioners that use this service have found this to be a very easy process by phone, but can also be done online.  As it is a flexible timetable, this obviously works both ways when booking.  You can normally get a time within five or ten minutes either way of your desired time.  Thursday is best booked a week in advance as being Market Day in Banbury, but the office will do their best to fit you in.  Bus passes are accepted after 9.30 a.m.

    To register, either call 0845 456 4474 or log on to www.county-connect.co.uk, you will then get a welcome pack with more details. The service does not operate on Sundays or bank holidays, it works on Mon - Fri 7am - 7pm, and Sat 8am - 6pm. You can travel as often as you like.

    If you want to have a local bus service then please think about registering for this one. Please pass the phone number on to anyone who is not on-line.  The guide to using the service can be downloaded here

A History of Boddington

10 to 12 Shillings a week with beer!

The spelling of Boddington has changed over the centuries from Botendon in Domesday Book (1086) through Bottelendon (12th century Survey of Northamptonshire), and Budinton in the Calendar of Close Rolls (1244) to Botyngdon (1358), Botyndoun (1396) and Botyngdon (1428). When it became established as Boddington we do not know, but on some 19th century maps it was spelled with only one d. The origin of the name could be Botas Hill (dun) or, as Baker surmises, it could be compounded of Boten, a contraction of the Saxon plural of botl, a habitation, and dune or done, a down, which corresponds with the situation of the upper village.
