Whittlebury is a small village of some 236 households and a population of 589 (2011 Census) set on the edge of the historical royal hunting forest of Whittlewood. The earliest settlement has been traced to the Iron Age, and King Athelstan held court in Whittlebury in c.930AD. Our rural legacy can still be found today with many mature trees and views over the countryside surrounding the village with, in particular, the woods, parkland and deer park on the southern edge.

The Parish Council provides your local services and we strive to make Whittlebury a better place in which to live, work and play. This website includes a wealth of information about how we conduct business and what we do. Use the search facility or browse the site to find whatever you are looking for. If you can't find the information you require then please contact us.

Highways England (HE) reports that there will be phased closures of the A5 in Towcester for "essential maintenance" starting on Monday July 23rd 2018 and lasting nearly 18 weeks until the end of November with two stand down periods, on 28th July for a concert at the Racecourse and from 24th-26th August for the MotoGP at Silverstone.

The work will affect the A5 from the bridge over the River Tove - near the junction with Old Tiffield Road that runs up to Tesco and the B&M Home Store - south east to Marlow Road, Towcester which is on the town side of the new roundabout to the Towcester Vale development. More »

There will be complete closure of the road and HE states that fully signed diversion routes "agreed with the Local Authority" will be put in place; the risk of Cow Pastures Lane and the A413 north west to the A43 becoming heavily congested as vehicles attempt to find a route from the A5 to the A43, and vice versa, appears extremely high.

Further, comprehensive information is available on the Towcester Town Council website: -
