There are 1,295 households within the Parish of Northchurch and it is a thriving and friendly community. It has one school, St Mary’s CE First School, which is set in beautiful grounds, two churches, St Mary’s and Northchurch Baptist Church that both run very successful youth groups for younger and older teens, a local convenience store, post office and other local shops. The recreation ground is always in use and is adjacent to the local cricket club. If you love walking, you will be spoilt for choice. There is the Grand Union Canal and beautiful Ashridge Forest right on the doorstep.

The website is being developed on an ongoing basis and we welcome residents’ comments and input. We would like the website to be a ‘one stop shop’ that everybody can use so we need your help. If there is anything you feel should be included, please contact the Parish Clerk either by email to northchurch.parishcouncil@zen.co.uk or by telephone on 01442 876911. If you have any fundraising activities or anything you want to share with other residents, please let us know.
