Welcome to the Heath and Reach Parish Council Website

The Parish of Heath and Reach

Heath and Reach is a village in South-West Bedfordshire with approximately 620 homes lying just two miles north of Leighton Buzzard, four miles south-east of Woburn and ten miles south of Milton Keynes Central Shopping Centre. There is easy access to the A5 trunk road and the newly built link road to the M1 Motorway.

The village is centred around a mix of thatched cottages and period properties. The village, highly sought after by house buyers, has continued to expand as people seek to move here, keen to join the community spirit. Here you find new build homes alongside former artisan cottages, Grade 2 listed buildings, together with open fields, footpaths and bridleways around our nationally known sand quarrying sites.

It is the role of the Parish Council to ensure Heath and Reach remains a desirable place to live.

The village boasts a lower school with an outstanding Ofsted result.
