Gaydon village[edit]

Gaydon is crossed by only two roads of any importance — the Kineton to Southam road, which runs in a north-easterly direction, and the Warwick and Banbury road which crosses it at right angles. Gaydon has one pub called the Malt Shovel. The Gaydon Inn, which is being redeveloped for housing, stands close to the point of intersection of the two roads. The village centre is situated along a short loop south of the junction. The Gaydon Inn was famous in the 18th century for its association with violent highwaymen.

The Malt Shovel pub, together with the adjacent community shop, is located off Church Road and is now the only commercial enterprise in the village.

The Manor House on Kineton Road dates back to the 17th century.

Although Gaydon has become something of a commuter village because of its proximity to the M40, which was completed in January 1991, it is undergoing a revival by looking back at its roots, agriculture and community spirit. There are plans to revive allotments in Gaydon with the backing of the local Parish Council. [3] A local village shop opened 24 May 2010 in the centre of the village providing local produce to local residents.[4]

The section of the M40 passing Gaydon was considered as the site of a possible motorway service station, with plans first being drawn up in 1986 before being scrapped in 1990, a few months before the motorway’s completion. [5]
