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.

The Whittlebury Good Neighbour Scheme fete held in stunning early autumn weather on Saturday 14th September was an outstanding success both for the Scheme and the village.
