About the Parish of Wraysbury

The Parish of Wraysbury sits on the east-most boundary of the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead. It has an illustrious history stretching back at least to the days of the Domesday book. One of its claims to fame is the fact that the Magna Carta was sealed within its boundaries in 1215. Runnymede also lays claim to this honour because the Magna Carta was apparently signed on an island in the middle of the Thames, but as King John arrived from the North Bank and only the Barons approached from the Runnymede side, Wraysbury should take precedence!

Wraysbury is a long, thin village, being a centre with village green, village hall and other facilities and three spurs of about a mile and a half each, stretching along the north bank of the Thames. It is surrounded by reservoirs and exhausted gravel pits, some of which, along with their surrounds, have SSSI status (Site of Special Scientific Interest) or similar.

Almost all of Wraysbury is just outside the M25, except for the half mile or so of Wraysbury Road leading to Lammas Park which is just inside the M25 at Junction 13. Indeed there can be only a couple of hundred yards of the Motorway inside the village boundaries.

To the North are Datchet and Horton, and to the South is Staines.

It is primarily a dormitory village now, with a population around three thousand many of whom work at the nearby Heathrow Airport or the large towns around such as Windsor, Slough and Staines. Less than one percent of the population work in agriculture now, according to the 1991 census.

The village boasts a modern village hall which hosts a considerable number of clubs and functions, active bowls, tennis, cricket and football clubs and scout and guide facilities for the younger members of the community. The lakes also host a number of water sports, from fishing, through sailing to diving.
