Community

Our village is a collective of amazing people striving to build a great community.

With nearly 1,000 residents, Whitchurch is the largest village between the towns of Aylesbury and Winslow.

It has a long history, dating back to the 12th Century, including Bolbec Castle (now a castle mound and privately owned, but you may walk on the footpath nearby) and a church with origins from the 13th Century – St John the Evangelist.  Once the Church is able to be fully opened again, why not pop in and have a look at the marks that were carved on many of the pillars by the Jesuits, centuries ago?  It is said that Oliver Cromwell’s horses stayed inside the church during the time when Bolbec Castle was being ransacked!

Community plan

In modern times the village has grown substantially and a new community plan is being prepared [Link to follow when available]. 

In 2020, the village became part of the new, single tier, Buckinghamshire Council meaning that village matters are managed by the parish council with most public services run by the council.

It is expected that this page will be expanded to include all the village activities – for all ages: and for every interest.
