Emberton is a village and civil parish in the Borough of Milton Keynesmarker, ceremonial Buckinghamshire in Englandmarker. The village is near the border with Northamptonshiremarker, just to the south of Olneymarker and four miles north of Newport Pagnellmarker.

The parish of Emberton is actually made up of three villages that were annexed together for ecclesiastical purposes in 1650: Petsoe, Ekeney and Emberton. Today nothing remains of Ekeney and Petsoe only exists as a hamlet called Petsoe Endmarker.

The village name is an Old English language word and means Eanbeorht's Farm. In the Domesday Book of 1086 the village was called Ambretone; in manorial records of 1227 it was Emberdestone.

The manor was previously owned by the Pagnell family of Newport Pagnell. The parish church is dedicated to All Saints.

At the heart of the village is the Clock Tower, recently renovated with the help of a grant from the Heritage Fund. Although there are no shops in the village, there is a Pub called the Bell and Bear. In 2006 situated next to the Bell and Bear, a Thai Restaurant has been established.

Dan Wheldon, one of the biggest names in Americanmarker motorsport, hails from Emberton. Though relatively unknown in his native Britainmarker, Wheldon became a star in the U.S after winning both the IndyCar championship and the Indy 500marker in 2005.

The Emberton Country Parkmarker is nearby.
