Hockliffe is a parish at the foot of the Chilterns, long and narrow in South West Bedfordshire. We are one of 79 town and parish councils that are under the control of Central Bedfordshire Council.
The village, which is situated in the south-west of the parish, straggles on either side of Watling Street for more than a mile. The church of St Nicholas stands north of the village, about a quarter of a mile to the west of the main road. North of the church is the entrance to Hockliffe Grange, an old house much modernised, beautifully situated on rising ground in a park of 40 acres.
Hockliffe has an area of 1,028 acres, a mixture of arable land, permanent grass and woodland. The parish is watered by two tributaries of the Clipstone Brook, one entering from Eaton Bray and passing north-east to Battlesden, the second in the south of the parish. There are old gravel pits in the north-east of the parish.
