Blockley Parish Council Website

Blockley Parish lies on upland farm and woodland close to the northern extremity of Cotswold District. It forms part of the boundary between the headwaters of the Rivers Thames and Severn. Significant clay deposits lie between the attractive limestone hills; springs form the main source of the several steeply-falling streams which flow through Blockley, Aston Magna and Draycott villages. By contrast, Paxford village, also within the Parish, lies on more open, level ground drained by the Knee Brook, a tributary of the River Stour.

The human and visual characteristics of Blockley Parish are strongly influenced both by its relatively isolated location in the rural North Cotswolds and by the industrial history of Blockley village, its main centre of population. With a population of about 2000 (in the 2001 census) it is one of the largest parishes in England in terms of area, at about 12 sq miles (30 sq km). The entire Parish lies within the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Release date: 28 December 2017

Recent snow and ice have hampered efforts to collect some waste and recycling collections in line with the revised schedules for the Christmas/New Year period. 

The District Council's waste collector Ubico is advising residents to leave waste and recycling at the kerbside until it is picked up.  Residents will also be able to leave extra waste provided it is bagged and placed by the side of the refuse bin. 

Please call the CDC waste hotline on 01285 623123 if you have any queries. 

Unfortunately, due to essential maintenance, the mobile library is unable to visit Blockley on 2nd January 2018.  Customers have been informed and items are renewed to 30th January 2018 which is the next visit.
