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 six councillors on the council, and they meet on the second Monday of each month at the Morrell Rooms, except during August. Our sixth and newest member is Laura Coyle, and her 'bio' will appear shortly.
We have space for two more councillors. If you feel suitably public spirited, can spare a few hours a month, and want to help in supporting the local community, then let please us know by contacting the clerk.
The task of councillor is not onerous, with the one monthly meeting over by 10pm. Outside of this there may be planning applications to peruse, local group meetings to attend, and possibly a little light nosing around.
