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.

CLOSURE OF DEANSHANGER ROAD OCTOBER 7TH - 18TH

Whittlebury Estate needs to carry out urgent tree works on land adjacent to the Buckingham Thick Copse National Nature Reserve on Deanshanger Road and as a consequence it will be necessary to close the road for two weeks from Monday 7th October to Friday 18th October.

If heading towards Buckingham, this is the road that goes to the left after the long straight that runs parallel to Whittlebury Golf Club, a few hundred yards before the county boundary sign. It is used by a number of motorists travelling to Milton Keynes who wish to avoid the A5 / Cowpastures Lane junction. More »
