Tourist Information

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.

Annual Parish Meeting in the Watlington Club Hall  at 19:30

on 9th July 2015

Please note the change of date and location.

The main agenda item for this meeting will discussion of the future for the Watlington Neighbourhood Plan in view of the events of the past few weeks.  The Parish Council wants to hear your views.

Do we continue with preparing a plan, or abandon it?

Should reducing traffic through town be a key component of any plan?

Are there "no-go" areas where no development is acceptable? 


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 will shortly be repainted in a different colour to avoid users' confusion of where long term parking is allowed.
