Great & Little Kimble cum Marsh Parish Council

Council challenge

(Kimble Stewart Hall)

Great & Little Kimble cum Marsh Parish is set in the beautiful Vale of Aylesbury at the foot of The Chiltern Hills in Buckinghamshire.

Each and everyone of our councillors welcome you to our rural parish. We are situated on the northern edge of the Wycombe District, with rich lower farm land to the North rising into part of the magnificent Chiltern Hills to the South.

The 394 homes are well spread across 1,212 hectares. The main settlements are Smoky Row, Clanking, Marsh, Kimblewick, Little Kimble and Great Kimble.

The southern part of the parish is within the Chilterns Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty and The Green Belt – an area representing nearly 25% of the parish. The rest is most attractive too, and we strive to keep it that way.

The National Trust owns the land around Pulpit Hill. There is a network of public footpaths and bridleways from which to explore the varied countryside within the parish.

The population is growing, with many young families now taking the numbers to just over 1,000 (988 in the 2001 Census).
