A little introduction to our beautiful village... 

                

Westoning is a vibrant village located approximately 7 miles north of Dunstable and 12 miles south of Bedford.  We are fortunate to be two miles from the M1 motorway, and the A5120 connecting Dunstable and Flitwick runs through the village.

The parish of Westoning has a population of 2,150 residents (2011 Census data) and contains some 836 dwellings and covers an area of 776 hectares. 

The village has a strong community spirit and has two churches, two pubs, a local store and butchers, a Recreation Club and ground, and numerous other clubs and associations.

There is a modern Lower School and the village is in the catchment area for the popular Barton Middle and Harlington Upper schools. Youth and senior footall teams play in the Recreation Ground, our netball team competes in the winter months, whilst Westoning Amateur Dramatics puts on three or four plays a year in the Village Hall.

There is a reasonable mix of housing in the village including housing association properties catering for young and older people.

 We are blessed with beautiful surrounding countryside - to the west,  Manor Fields and the east,  Sampshill.
