Slapton is a rural parish with three distinct settlements, namely Slapton, Horton and Grove. It is situated in the Vale of Aylesbury, one of three administrative districts in Buckinghamshire. It lies between the Grand Union Canal and the border with the county of Bedfordshire. The nearest town, Leighton Buzzard, is several miles to the North. The name Slapton, Anglo Saxon in origin, means ‘Farm by a Slippery Place’. The number of farms in the Parish and quantity of clay testifies to this!
