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.

PLANS FOR THE NEW WHITTLEBURY READING ROOM

For those villagers who were unable to attend either of the two recent drop-in sessions at the Reading Room or The HUG Cafe on Friday 22nd March 2019 to view the plans for the new building and to offer their comments, there are a number of documents here which will give a lot of information about the existing Reading Room, its history and recent usage, the outline plans for the new building and a questionnaire. More »

It would be much appreciated if as many people as possible could download the questionnaire, complete it and return it via the post box at the Reading Room at the latest by Sunday 14th April (and not 31st March as mentioned in the questionnaire). The results of this will assist the Renovation Committee greatly in "evidencing the need" for the new building. » Less

A NEW BUS SERVICE FOR WHITTLEBURY

ABILITY (Northants) cic is coming to Whittlebury. After months of frustration about the lack of a public bus service in the village, this Community Interest Company has now agreed to operate a service on Wednesday mornings that will take residents to Towcester and back.

A contribution of £500 from the Parish Council will be required before the service can start and it is intended that a resolution to agree to this payment will be passed at the PC's next meeting on Thursday 11th April 2019. More »

Also, it is a legal requirement that all passengers have to be registered with the scheme prior to travel and full details are available on ABILITY's website - www.abilitycic.org.uk - including a downloadable registration form.

Details are also available on the attached document from ABILITY cic "A Proposal to Support the Village of Whittlebury."

And once the service is running, all that will remain will be for villagers use it! » Less
