Woburn Sands is a small town and civil parish in the Borough of Milton Keynes, England, and part of the Milton Keynes urban area. It is south-east of Milton Keynes proper, near Wavendon. The boundary of the Borough with Bedfordshire is also that with the neighbouring parishes of Aspley Guise and Aspley Heath (in Central Bedfordshire); together the three settlements are a contiguous built-up area. Not all of Woburn Sands built-up area is in the civil parish which has its name: the meandering boundary between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire means the Primary and Middle Schools named after the town are both across the border in Aspley Guise. At the 2011 Census, the population of the civil parish (only) was 2,916, that of the built-up area (including much of Aspley Guise) was 5,959. The town is served by Woburn Sands railway station which co-serves the near end of Wavendon which, unlike Wavendon Gate, is separated by fields from Milton Keynes. The station is on the Marston Vale line, three closely placed stops east of a main line junction station.
