The village of Streatley is situated on the Berkshire side of the river Thames, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). It is about 8 miles from Reading, and 16 miles from Oxford, directly opposite the village of Goring in Oxfordshire.
On the Ridgeway route from Silchester to Dorchester, the river crossing was originally a causeway built by the Romans. Streatley is recorded as a settlement in the Domesday Book of 1086, with the original St Mary’s church dating from 1220.
The overall layout, character and shape of the village today is clearly discernible from the earliest 19th century maps with the High Street running up from the river ferry to the Bull public house.

The parish council represents the village of Streatley at the lowest tier of local government. It has a number of duties which they are bound to carry out, and greater number of powers, which they may choose to carry out
There are currently seven councillors on the council, and they meet on the second Monday of each month at the Morrell Rooms, except during August.
The parish council has been asked by the Friends of Strealey Rec to help replace the adventure play equipement on Streatley Rec. This is now some 20 years old and some of it is in bad repair. So we are replacing it all.
Consultation showed that the kids in the village wanted it replaced with something very similar, and that is what we are doing.
We are raising money for this and have applied to Skipton Building Society, and been shortlisted for funds. We now need as many people as possible to go on-line and vote for us!
