Hockliffe Parish Council
Hockliffe is a parish at the foot of the Chilterns, long and narrow in South West Bedfordshire.
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.
