After much effort, sweat, perseverance and assiduity, it looks as though we may get the road widened at the entrance to the Valley!  The Parish Council has secured partial funding from the South Bucks LAF (Local Area Forum) and the balance will be made up from PC reserves and as much funding as they can get elsewhere.



This is a website for everyone in the Valley so please, please contribute.  We always welcome articles from residents and would love to know if you have been doing something special, whether it is for the benefit of the community or just possibly out of the ordinary!


Welcome to the Marlow Bottom Valley Residents Association (MBVRA)

Marlow Bottom is a large linear village occupying a valley to the north of Marlow, Buckinghamshire. This website aims to bring the visitor up to date with events in the Village as well as providing a point of contact with the MBVRA.

Did you know that all adult residents are automatically members of the MBVRA on moving to the area?!

Our aims are:

  • To act to safeguard the communal interests of the residents and the built and natural environments of Marlow Bottom and Seymour Plain;
  • To promote involvement in the life and welfare of the local community through campaigning, fund raising and communication, and
  • To support and work with others in achieving these objectives.

The Association, formed in the late 1960s, meet 4 times a year and, as a resident, you are welcome to join us. Membership is free. Further details can be obtained from
