|Views of Stoke Hammond|
|Stoke Hammond is a pretty village positioned between Leighton Buzzard and Bletchley. It has a shop, pub, Church and Chapel. The Chapel and shop were built at the same time and opened on the same day in 1927.
There is a sports centre and community centre positioned near the village park. The community centre, was, until recent years, the village school. When the school was closed, the village raised the money to buy the building, which is now used on a day to day basis for playgroup and nursery. Guides, Brownies, Cubs, Scouts and Beavers meet there every week and many of the village social occasions are held there.
Stoke Hammond has gone through many changes in recent years, with new houses being built at Phoebes orchard, Mount Pleasant and Manor Close. The population has increased greatly. A bypass has now been agreed to relieve the village of the constant stream of traffic travelling through it.
