Welcome to the Drayton Bassett Village website provided by Drayton Bassett Parish Council.

Whether you are a resident of the parish, a past resident, planning to move to or visit the area, or just plain curious, we hope you will find information on this site, which is both interesting and useful.

The objective of this site is to give you an idea of what is available in Drayton Bassett, and what the Parish Council does on your behalf to improve the village.

It is hoped that the site will become an integral part of the parish; however it will only evolve if people use it and provide feedback.
