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.

Streatley Parish Council currently has a vacancy for a Parish Councillor.

The 2017 Streatley Litterpick will take place on Saturday 8th April between 10.00 and 12 noon.
All volunteers (adults and children) are invited to come to the Morrell Room from 10.00 on Saturday 8th April to select the area where you would like to collect litter.
Please come and help, even if you can only spare half an hour. Children should be accompanied by adults, and can select areas which are child friendly and safe. We hope that sufficient volunteers will support this initiative so that all the rubbish that is dropped in Streatley by antisocial people who care little about our village and countryside can be collected. Bags of rubbish should be left next to or behind the bus shelter at the crossroads (not outside the Morrell Room please).
Litter picking equipment, sacks and gloves will be provided, courtesy of West Berks Council. All volunteers will be covered by the Parish Councils insurance policy.
