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.

REFORMING WHITTLEBURY'S WI

Many will recall that there used to be a thriving WI in the village which, unfortunately, had to fold about three years ago due, principally, to declining numbers of members.

Currently, there are attempts to reform the local branch and to that end, Anne Seckington of Brackley WI arranged a meeting in the Reading Room on Saturday 4th January 2020 to try and gauge interest. Unfortunately there were insufficient villagers present to get things moving formally with the election of a president, secretary and treasurer but there is hope that more villagers will come forward in the near future.

Below are contact details for those who might be interested in becoming WI members in a new Whittlebury branch. » Less
