Bierton & Broughton

The Civil Parish of Bierton with Broughton is situated to the North East of Aylesbury and covers an area of 990 hectares (3.8 square miles) of Buckinghamshire countryside.

The western edge of the parish runs along the boundary of Aylesbury town.

The urban area has spilled a small amount into the parish at Oldhams Meadow but elsewhere there is a distinct buffer of open country between the villages and the town limits. The village has fought hard to preserve this clear separation.

The parish really contains four villages; Bierton, Broughton, Oldhams Meadow and the newly developed Kingsbrook.

At the north end of Bierton is Burcott, which was once a separate settlement but is now connected with Bierton along the Burcott Lane.

The small settlement at Broughton Crossing grew up around the station on the old North Western Railway. The station has long since closed and very little now remains of the old railway line.

Broughton is situated at the south of the parish along the small lane that joins the Tring Road with Bierton.

Kingsbrook is an exciting new community which will eventually consist of 2,450 new homes, located south of the Parish, neighbouring Broughton. Providing new schools, community centres, sports facilities and parks, the new community aims to be eco and wildlife friendly.

The latest estimate of the population is 2,178 which is based on the 2011 census.
