A warm welcome to the official website of Gilcrux Parish Council , incorporating the villages of Gilcrux and Bullgill. We hope that this site will be useful to all parishioners and visitors to this parish.

Today, there are thousands of Parish Councils in, what are known in England as 'Civil Parishes', throughout the United Kingdom. Parish Councils work on behalf of their local communities and their responsibilities are summarised here: Powers and Functions of Parish Councils.

Historically, Parish Councils have been around for centuries - when villages like Gilcrux were first properly developed and where administration and justice were levied by a ruling clique, usually a Lord of the Manor and, later, by religious factions such as a Parish Rector and well-endowed monasteries.

The Parish Councils we are familiar with today came about because of the 1894 Local Government Act, seen through parliament from Prime Minister W. E. Gladstone.
