The parish of Worminghall is situated in the county of Buckinghamshire, on the borders of Oxfordshire, from which it is divided on the S.E by the river Thame, a tributary of the Thames, into which it flows at Dorchester.
Worminghall comprises around 2000 acres, is 5 miles from Thame (pop. 13,000), and 10 miles from Oxford (pop. 160,000); the nearest station is Haddenham on the Chiltern Line which runs between London Marylebone and Birmingham Snowhill.
It is in the union and county court district of Thame, the hundred of Ashendon, the rural deanery of Waddesdon, the archdeaconry of Buckingham and the diocese of Oxford. The current parliamentary constituency is that of Buckingham. (Likely to change to the Bernwood Ward of Mid-Buckinghamshire before the next General Election)
Currently a population of around 500 souls and growing with controlled development – see Village Neighbourhood Plan
