Slapton is a rural parish with three distinct settlements, namely Slapton, Horton and Grove. It is situated in the Vale of Aylesbury, one of three administrative districts in Buckinghamshire. It lies between the Grand Union Canal and the border with the county of Bedfordshire. The nearest town, Leighton Buzzard, is several miles to the North. The name Slapton, Anglo Saxon in origin, means ‘Farm by a Slippery Place’. The number of farms in the Parish and quantity of clay testifies to this!

Buckinghamshire County Council - Statement on Brownlow Bridge

 

"The original temporary traffic regulation order on the bridge was introduced on the 09th May and is in place for 12 months. We are working hard on finding the solution for the bridge and HGV in the wider communities and are hopeful to be able to bring these to public consultation at the earliest opportunity. In the meantime we are grateful for the continued goodwill and patience of the residents, communities and local businesses."

Don't pay twice!!

Have you been witness to damage to the highway? It's vital that you report this to Bucks CC  so that they can claim the money back to repair the damage - otherwise the taxpayer ends up paying for the highway twice! Last year, TfB were able to claim over £120,000 for damage caused to the highway, all of which went towards the necessary repairs. This wouldn't have been possible without you, the people reporting this damage.
