About the parish

Swindon is one of five parishes in Cheltenham Borough (the others being Prestbury, Charlton Kings, Leckhampton and Up Hatherley). We are the smallest with approximately 1400 electors.

The parish is quite diverse. Swindon Village itself is only one part of the parish and is based on an ancient settlement. You can read something of the history of the area here. Part of the Village is a Conservation Area. We also have high density housing areas, two large out of town retail parks and a busy industrial estate.
