Watlington stands between the Vale of Oxford and the steep slopes of the Chilterns. The town is steeped in history and was first recorded as a Saxon settlement in the 8th Century, but the discoveries of a Bronze Age Axe and Roman Coins suggest an earlier past.

THE POST OFFICE IS MOVING
You may already have heard talk that the Post Office is likely to
move to the Co-op. For more details and an invitation to give your
views on this proposed move see the attached note. You have till the end
of September to respond.
The Parish Council will be discussing this at
their meeting on 13th September.
IMPORTANT: NEW BUS SERVICES
Our bus services have changed with a much reduced service since 24th July. For more information see the Parish Council page.
The good news is that a market-day only bus service to Thame started on Tuesday 16th August as a replacement for the old 124 service.
Please give us your views on this as soon as possible.
HILL ROAD CAR PARK
In October 2014 the Parish Council made Watlington Parish Council (Off-street parking places) Order 2014 which will give the council the authority to enforce parking regulations in Hill Road Car Park, including among things, the ability to issue penalty charges on vehicles that overstay the two hour limit in the designated short term parking spaces. The short stay parking spaces have now been repainted in red to avoid users' confusion on where long term parking is allowed.
