Marston Moretaine (Marston Moreteyne) is a large village and civil parish located on the A421 between Bedford and Milton Keynes. It has a population of 3,684, and is served by Millbrook railway station, which is about a mile away, on the Marston Vale Line.


On the outskirts of the village sits the Forest Centre and Millennium Country Park in the heart of the Forest of Marston Vale. The village now has several shops, one public house, a doctor's surgery, an Indian restaurant and two Lower schools, across the main village and the adjoining hamlets of Upper Shelton, Lower Shelton and Wood End.

Sir Thomas Snagge lived in the village in the 16th century. He owned the manor of Marston Moretaine.
