Chearsley Village Traffic Surveys 2020

The final report on our Traffic Survey carried out on 24th September can be accessed on this link.

We had an opportunity to compare the results with a virtually identical survey carried out in July and the following were the headline findings:

  • There was a small reduction of HGV journeys through the village in September but a significant increase in journeys by LCVs and private cars/vans compared to July
  • The Crendon and Winchendon Roads remain by far the busiest routes through the village and only 5% of HGV journeys and around 10% of all vehicle journeys ended in a ‘village destination’.
  • September saw a return to heavier traffic levels during ‘rush hour’ periods at both ends of the day.
  • Most HGV traffic through the village is operated by ‘non-local’ companies

 We will use the findings to support the PCs continuing efforts in lobbying for appropriate restrictions on HGV traffic using the wholly unsuitable routes on the minor roads through Chearsley Village.

Harvest Food Donations


Celebrating Harvest Festival in Chearsley 2020

 Try your hand at making a corn dolly, using this instruction leaflet, hang it on your door or display in the window to show that Chearsley is celebrating Harvest. Or a tied bunch of Autumn leaves and berries would be just as good!

Harvest Festival services at St Nicholas’ Church on Sunday 11th October:


9.30am – a traditional Harvest Festival with Holy Communion

4.00pm – an informal all age Messy Church celebration, also at the church

All services and activities at the church are ‘COVID safe’ respecting the current requirements on numbers attending, and social distancing. Everyone is required to wear a mask or face covering inside the church building. Thank you for your co-operation at this challenging time.
