Welcome to the Woodmancote Parish Council website.

Woodmancote is a rural parish covering an area some 2090 acres but only about 200 dwellings and a population in the region of 500. Blackstone is the geographical heart with the boundaries being the B2116 to the north, and south of the A281 in the south. It borders Henfield to the west and Albourne to the east. St Peter’s Anglican church is situated on the A281 and is thought to date from the 13th Century, having been substantially rebuilt in 1868. In the churchyard there is a monument to two protestant martyrs, Thomas Harland and John Oswald, who were burnt at the stake in Lewes in 1556 in the Marian Persecutions. The church hall, which serves as the parish hall, is situated nearby and is where parish council meetings are held at 7.30pm on the second Tuesday of each month. Members of the public are always welcome to attend. The aim of this site is to provide our community with a shop window of events in the parish, easy access to the minutes of previous council meetings and useful information about the area. The Parish Council is the first point of contact in most matters affecting Woodmancote where issues and concerns are discussed and hopefully resolved to the greater good of the community. The council is here to serve you and try to make a difference, so if you have any ideas about the content of the website which may be beneficial, or have any worries or concerns about any matter relating to the parish, please feel free to contact the Parish Clerk – we are here to try to help!
