Westbury (on the border of Northamptonshire and Buckinghamshire) is situated off the A422 between Brackley and Buckingham. Westbury can trace its roots back to Saxon times when an entrenched camp was built on a mound north east of the church in 867 A.D. The history of the village is depicted in specially-commissioned woodcarvings which now form an historic village trail throughout Westbury. You can pick up a (free) booklet so you can follow the trail, from the village shop & cafe.
Today, Westbury is a thriving village, home to around 500 inhabitants. There is an extremely active Parish Council and a fantastic team of residents committing their time and energy into making the village a vibrant and exciting place to live. You will receive a warm welcome whether you would just like to dip in or become fully involved in village life.
