Hulcott All Saints


The Parish

The parish of Hulcott lies in south central Buckinghamshire, despite this relatively central position within the county Hulcott actually forms part of the border with neighbouring Hertfordshire which pushes a peninsula of land deep into surrounding Buckinghamshire. Hulcott is located about 3 miles northeast of the large market town of Aylesbury and sits, just off the A418 road which connects Aylesbury with Leighton Buzzard. Hulcott is small, little more than a hamlet reached by an out-and-back lane to the east of the A418. Hulcott sits on the floodplain of the infant River Thame and its parish was almost completely used for pasture in the heavy clay soils of this area. The Thame drains the parish westwards, through northern Aylesbury to reach it larger namesake, the Thames, near the Oxfordshire village of Dorchester; from here water turns back east to flow through the capital to the North Sea. Hulcott is sited at around 80 metres above the sea, in its shallow valley setting the land is mostly flat but rises gently out of the valley to local heights of around 130 metres at nearby Aston Abbotts. By Buckinghamshire standard Hulcott parish was tiny, covering barely 700 acres it was small by most rural standards and supported less than 150 parishioners. Hulcott is not mentioned in Domesday Book.

The Church

All Saints' church sits at the heart of the hamlet, where the lanes forms a circle around the large green. Pevsner declines to commit to a date for the church's earliest portion, the nave but states it is earlier than the chancel of the early 14th century. Both dates place the church within the Decorated period of architecture. The former transept which augmented the early church was later, in the early 16th century, converted into a southern aisle; it was during this period the church acquired its spire. A significant Victorian restoration took place in the early 1860s which re-roofed the building as well as adding the eastern buttresses. Hulcott's green is an asset to the hamlet and provides a space for parking by the church. A simple lychgate grants entry to the churchyard which is compact but sufficient to allow recording of the church.
