Discovering your parish

Boundaries divide parishes across the county, but why are they in these locations? Are there features that define the boundaries today? What condition are they in? Have any changes taken place? Are there any unusual stories?

We commissioned Oxford Archaeology to undertake and create a report exploring such questions. If you would like the full report please request the 'Parish Boundary Report' from

As part of the project we wanted to involve you. Therefore we presented the methodology and findings at a community event. If you missed the event we are happy to send you the presentation. Again please contact if you would like a copy.
