Everdon is a rural village situated to the west of the A45 midway between the town of Daventry and the village of Weedon. Road communications are excellent with the A5 and A45 both accessed at nearby Weedon. Junction 16 of the M1 is about 6 miles to the east at Upper Heyford. Intercity rail services are available at Rugby to the north, Northampton to the east and Milton Keynes to the south.
The village has a public house, a 12th century Parish Church, a field centre and village hall. A school bus is provided to transport pupils to the junior school in the neighbouring village of Newnham and the comprehensive school at Daventry. There is a bus service to Daventry for shopping. Everdon Stubbs is a well-known beauty spot, as are the nearby Fawsley Park and Badby Woods. Sporting facilities in the area include golf at Farthingstone, horse racing at Towcester, hunting with the Grafton, and motor racing at Silverstone.
You can tell from the website www.everdon.com that this is a village with a real community feel, with many clubs and organisations running throughout the year for the benefit of local and surrounding villagers. The village has a very good community spirit and regularly holds several annual functions, one of which is the Grand Fete, usually held on the bank holiday Monday in August. In more recent times, the Everdon Bonfire and Fireworks party, which began in 2006, has become a very successful event, raising funds for the church restoration fund.
To coincide with the bluebells of Everdon Stubbs in the spring, a team of village residents host the 'Bluebell Teas' in the village hall, with the hope that people visiting the woods will drop by. It is well supported by many villagers.
