Hanslope is a village and civil parish in the Borough of Milton Keynes, England. The village is about 4 miles (6.4 km) west northwest of Newport Pagnell, about 4 miles (6.4 km) north of Stony Stratford and 8 miles (13 km) north of Central Milton Keynes. The northern parish boundary is part of the county boundary with Northamptonshire.

Hanslope was historically part of Buckinghamshire, and remains so for ceremonial purposes.

The West Coast Main Line between London Euston and Glasgow passes through the western part of the parish, just over 1 mile (1.6 km) west of the village.
Hanslope was included in the grant of land to the Norman Maudit family by William the Conqueror following the Norman Conquest and the family's seat was Hanslope Castle, which later became Castlethorpe. On 28 November 1215, the castle was captured after William Maudit had started a rebellion against King John and was defeated in battle by the king's men, who were led by Falkes de Breauté. The castle building has been lost but the grassy mounds of the motte and bailey earthworks survive. After King John's death, Maudit reclaimed his seat and founded a great park in the parish, remnants of which still survive in Hanslope. Isabel Mauduit was the mother of William de Beauchamp, 9th Earl of Warwick (1237–98). From 1293 the Earl was chartered to have a weekly market in Hanslope on Thursdays and a three-day annual market on the eve, day and morrow of the feast of St. James the Great (24, 25 and 26 July).[5]

In 1316, Crown official and judge Adam de Harvington was given the living of Hanslope. He would go on to become England's Chancellor of the Exchequer in 1327.

In the middle ages the parish was part of Salcey Forest[6] and Hanslope Park was originally a medieval deer park.[7] Much later, the park was landscaped by Humphry Repton before 1794.[8]

In 1697 the distinguished clockmaker Joseph Knibb (1640–1711) retired from London to Hanslope,[9] acquiring Green End Farm with a total of about 230 acres (93 ha) of land.[10] Despite his retirement, he continued at Hanslope to make clocks, some of which survive.[9] His will, proved in 1712 left his Hanslope property to his younger brother John Knibb[3] (1650–1722),[11] who was a notable clockmaker in Oxford.[12] However, John kept his business in Oxford and only one clock marked "John Knibb Hanslapp" is known.[4]

In 1714, Gervase Pierrepont, 1st Baron Pierrepont was made Baron Pierrepont of Hanslope in the County of Buckingham, in the Peerage of Great Britain, with this creation giving him an automatic seat in the House of Lords. On his death on 22 May 1715, the barony ceased to be, but the title Baron Pierrepont has been used twice since in other parts of the country.

Green End Farmhouse predated the Knibbs' ownership of the farm and was a scheduled monument under the Town and Country Planning Act 1947.[10] Despite this protection its last owner demolished the historic house in 1954.[10]

Hanslope was a centre of Buckinghamshire lacemaking in the 19th century. Early in the 19th century, Hanslope lace was noted as being particularly fine, and in 1862 about 500 women and children in the parish were employed making pillow lace.[2]

Walter Drawbridge Crick was born in Hanslope on 15 December 1857. He was an English businessman (shoemaker), amateur geologist and palaeontologist who published with Charles Darwin.[13][14][15] He was the grandfather of Francis Crick, the molecular geneticist.[16]
