Good news! As you may already know, we now have an official parish website.

This can be found at www.eastbrentparishcouncil.org.uk 

Much of the information carried in this Rooksbridge website will now be taken on by the official parish website.

After more than 12 years running this Rooksbridge village website, I feel that the new site which will be professionally designed, published and funded by the Parish Council, will be a vast improvement.

As many of you have found, some of the links etc on this site no longer function correctly!  This is mainly due to the outdated software I use and the fact that website technology has vastly improved over all these years.
So I thought it would be a good time pass on the reins to the professionals!

I would like to thank all those kind and helpful people who have submitted items of news and information etc which has helped keep the Rooksbridge site interesting over the years.

For more information about the new parish website and posting items, you can contact

webadmin@eastbrentparishcounil.org.uk  or  theclerk@eastbrentparishcouncil.org.uk


The new website will have a history portal organised by the East Brent Parish History Group.

Please contact: Colin Loader at: ebphgroup@talktalk.net

or: Nigel Lloyd-Jones at: nigel@lloydjones.net


Meanwhile, for the many contacts I have made over the years regarding the history of the village, you can still find some of your history and genealogy information here:



Contact me by email or telephone as above with any  information for our village history

Or you may leave items for the website with:
Danny or Sandy at the Rooksbridge Post Office.

The loan of old photo's and stories of East Brent and Rooksbridge are always needed and appreciated
