Nether Winchendon (also known as Lower Winchendon) is a village and also a civil parish within Aylesbury Vale district in Buckinghamshire, England. It is near the border of Oxfordshire, about five miles west of Aylesbury and three miles south of Waddesdon.

The village name 'Winchendon' originates from Anglo Saxon, meaning 'hill at a bend.' The Winchendon villages were recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Wincandone.

Nether Wichendon House

Nether Winchendon House, a grand manor house in Nether Winchendon, was a former priory under Notley Abbey in Long Crendon. It was purchased and largely remodelled by the Duke of Bedford in the sixteenth century. It is now open to the public and is noted for its magnificent interior. Nether Winchendon House also hosts weddings and has beautiful gardens. Nether Winchendon has been a frequent setting for television and film production, including two Midsomer Murders episodes (as different houses), Lady Pat's house in Forever Green and the BBC series Chef! starring Lenny Henry. Nether Winchendon Church was also used as the setting for a Christening scene in the second Bridget Jones's Diary film, but can only be seen on the deleted scenes section of the DVD.
