West Wycombe Parish Council

Coronavirus - Covid-19

West Wycombe Parish Council is currently waiting for the government to update legislation and advise us as to how we can function over the coming months.

At the moment, West Wycombe Village Stores (01494 526439) have offered to deliver items to isolated residents. Nik Coles at Tudor House butchers (tel: 04194 526880) will endeavour to get an order to you and West Wycombe Village Facebook page has developed a group called: WW Help Our Neighbours https://www.facebook.com/groups/507345943280074/

Individual cul de sacs and roads are setting up their own contact systems.

If you are isolated and need advice please do not hesitate to contact: Sharon Henson, Clerk to the Parish Council or 01494 448048 and I will try to help. I may well be socially isolated but I will do what I can to help.

At this worrying time please be aware of your neighbours who may need help and support and remember a phone call or a card or note through the door can make all the difference to someone who is feeling very scared and lonely.

This document details the priority workers.

The Pedestal Playing Field is now closed until further notice.

Update from Buckinghamshire Council on changes to services
Video message from the Chief Constable

Today it was announced that only Black Refuse Bins would be collected until further notice which means that brown bins now joins blue and green bins in being temporarily suspended. You should, for the time being, place any food that you cannot compost yourself, into the Black Bin.

Refuse collection is getting very confusing and seems to be changing by the hour. Latest is that recycling is now back on but that food waste should be emptied from your brown bin into the black bin. In view of the recent confusion we will not be updating refuse collection information but ask you to check directly at https://www.buckinghamshire.gov.uk/coronavirus/service-changes/ for all service related issues.

News & Events


West Wycombe (not to be confused with West Wickham in Kent) is a small village situated along the A40 road, three miles west of High Wycombe in Buckinghamshire.

The historic village is largely owned by the West Wycombe VillageNational Trust and receives a large influx of tourists - being the site of West Wycombe ParkWest Wycombe Caves, St Lawrence Church and the Mausoleum on top of West Wycombe Hill.

Mausoleum on West Wycombe HillThe Mausoleum, St Lawrence Church and the Golden Ball above West Wycombe village are impressive local landmarks, visually dominating the village and local landscape for miles surrounding.

Church of St Laurence West WycombeWest Wycombe Park, Caves, Mausoleum and St Lawrence Church were all constructed in the mid-18th century by Sir Francis Dashwood, founder of the Dilettanti Society and co-founder of the notorious Hellfire Club.

Although it is on the busy A40, the village centre retains much of its historical charm. It is mainly owned by the National Trust, and so has resisted modernisation.

The High Street has a number of 'old-fashioned' shops (in appearance at least), as well as three pubs, some small offices, a well-used village hall and St Paul's Church.

Just off the High Street is the village Combined School (ages 4–11). The population is around 1,300.
