Welcome To Whittlebury

Whittlebury is a small village of some 236 households and a population of 589 (2011 Census) set on the edge of the royal hunting forest of Whittlewood. The earliest settlement has been traced to the Iron Age, and King Athelstan held court in Whittlebury in c930AD.

Our rural legacy can still be found today – we have many mature trees and views over the countryside surrounding Whittlebury, and in particular the woods, parkland and deer park to the south of the village.

Our community in Whittlebury has been active in recognising and protecting our heritage for future generations to enjoy, through the Appraisal and Design Statement.

We hope this website will provide a useful source of information for both residents and visitors wishing to learn more about our community; we see this as a constantly evolving document designed to record past and present life in our village, whilst also promoting future events.
