ASHENDON - formerly Assendon, Assendune, Eshenden or Essendone, with its hamlets of Great and Little Policott, is bounded on the north by the village of Wooton-Underwood; on the east by Westcott in Waddesdon, and Over or Upper Winchendon; on the south by Nether or Lower Winchendon, Chearsley and Chilton, and on the west by Dorton. It lies about eight miles and a half west of Aylesbury, six north of Thame in Oxfordshire, and two miles and a half south of the road from Aylesbury to Bicester. The village consists of farm-houses and cottages irregularly built upon a hill, from which elevated position it seems to have derived the latter portion of its name, “don” meaning an “eminence”.

Ashendon Parish Council
Ashendon Parish Council consists of five Councillors who play a role in representing the interests of the community they serve. Councillors meet in the Village Hall, Main Street, Ashendon, HP18 0HB on the third Monday of the month (excluding February, July, August and October and December). This is a public meeting and everyone is welcome to attend. The Chairman is elected every year at the Annual General Meeting in May. Parish Councillors are elected every four years. The next Parish Council elections will be held in 2025.
