WELCOME to Heath and Reach our historic conservation area village in Bedfordshire
This is the place where you can learn about the history of our community, flick through our present calendar of activities and see how we are planning carefully for the future of this beautiful location.
Just two miles from Leighton Buzzard, Heath and Reach is centred around a mix of thatched cottages and period properties.The village highly sought after by house buyers has continued to expand as people seek to move here, keen to join the community spirit. Here you find new build homes alongside former artisan cottages, and open fields (and a new nature trail) around the rim of our nationally known sand quarrying sites.
It is the role of the Parish Council to ensure Heath and Reach remains a desirable place to live.
The village boasts a lower school with an outstanding Ofsted, a new outdoor play area, a village barn with a host of leisure classes under its roof, and even a boxing club. These are all organisations or locations the Parish Council has been involved with.
If you are just here to learn a little about our village, please feel free to browse. But if you already live here, or are thinking of moving here, do take the time to look through the Parish Council minutes and agenda they will give you a genuine feel for what life is like. The Parish Council only works because concerned and involved people give up spare time, and if you could play a role, it would be great to hear from you.
We hope you enjoy your virtual visit to Heath and Reach, and feel inspired to come and look around in person.
