Streatley House

Welcome

The village of Streatley is situated on the Berkshire side of the river Thames, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). It is about 8 miles from Reading, and 16 miles from Oxford, directly opposite the village of Goring in Oxfordshire.

On the Ridgeway route from Silchester to Dorchester, the river crossing was originally a causeway built by the Romans. Streatley is recorded as a settlement in the Domesday Book of 1086, with the original St Mary's church dating from 1220.

The overall layout, character and shape of the village today is clearly discernible from the earliest 19th century maps with the High Street running up from the river ferry to the Bull public house.

Village Litter Pick

Saturday 8th April 2017

The 2017 Streatley Litterpick has been a great success

Saturday 8th April was a beautiful sunny day for the Streatley Litterpick. The Parish Council would like to thank the 17 adults and children who turned out to collect litter, nearly double the number who did so in 2016. Let us hope that even more volunteers turn out in 2018!

Every part of the village was targeted and many of the local residents expressed their thanks to the team of volunteers as they saw them collecting the rubbish. It was interesting to note that on the main roads the majority of the rubbish (particularly food wrappers, crisp packets, cans and plastic bottles) appeared to have been discarded from vehicles, whereas in the purely residential roads the litter was mainly smaller items and especially cigarette butts.

Once again we are very grateful to the management and staff at The Swan for providing well-earned refreshments to all the volunteers after their hard work.
