Stokenchurch Parish Council

The Stokenchurch Parish Council website provides details about our area, upcoming events, local democracy information, and help to access local services.

The M40 runs through the centre of the parish, making London, Oxford and the Midlands very accessible.

Mixed farmland and woodlands surround the parish. Most of this is either Green Belt or within the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with the result that the village has been protected from over-development. In addition the centre of the village is a designated conservation area. A short distance to the west is the Aston Rowant National Nature Reserve.

At 700 feet it is one of the highest villages on the recently designated 'Chiltern Way'. It boasts one of the densest populations of red kites in Europe. As a result the area attracts walkers, countryside lovers and wild life enthusiasts from far and wide.
