Silverstone is a medium sized village in Northamptonshire, England. It lies roughly equidistant from Northampton, Milton Keynes and Banbury, and it has a population of about 2,000.
About half a mile to the south of the village is the Silverstone Circuit, traditionally the home of the British Grand Prix. This Formula 1 race attracts over 100,000 visitors each year.
In the Middle Ages the village trade was primarily in timber from the surrounding Whittlewood forest, through the use of coppicing. Linnell Brothers still operate a woodyard to this day. Fish ponds on the north side of the village fed the villagers.
The village is listed in the Domesday Book.
