Waresley Parish Council was formed in 1972, when government legislation decreed that parishes of this size must have one.
In 2009, following an electoral boundary review, Waresley and its neighbouring parish of Tetworth (which had up to this point managed to avoid having a parish council), were amalgamated to form the parish of Waresley-cum-Tetworth.
Here you will find a brief history of Waresley detailing origins of the parish and some interest facts regarding local families.
Our village dates back to the Saxon times and references to the name 'Weresle' date to 975.
We have put together a collection of historic photographs of Waresley and the local area.
If you have any interesting pictures, please email our website administrator on the contacts page.
We would love to include as many as possible.
Our war memorial stands in the churchyard of St.James' church. The memorial covers World War One and is fairly unique as it lists the full name, battalion, regiment, theatre of war, and age for each man. The memorial was unveiled in March 1920.
