Culworth Parish Council

Name About

Andrew Wilby (Chairman May 2021 to date)

I moved to Culworth in 2017, having lived in Towcester for 40 years. I represented Towcester on South Northants Council for a number of years, serving in the Cabinet and on Planning, Policy and Financial Committees. I was a member of the Steering group that oversaw the regeneration of Towcester Town Centre, and the southern extension and served as Chairman of the Council 2012-2013. Since 2009 I have been Chairman of John Taylor & Co Ltd of Loughborough, the last surviving Bellfoundry in the UK. Hopefully my past experience across local government may be of use locally.

Nancy Guinness

I returned to live in Culworth in 2013, with my husband and three children. I joined the parish council in 2014. After a happy childhood in the village and surrounding country I am keen to help preserve, protect and support developments within the parish.


David Mumford

My family has an association with the village going back many generations.  I own the Butcher's Shop and General Store.

Stuart Rolt

I have lived in Culworth for more than 20 years. I joined the Parish Council in 2012, and having retired from chairman’s responsibilities at Silverstone circuit, am able to devote time and energy to the Parish Council.

Martin Rowling

I moved to Culworth in 1969 and was joint owner of Culworth Engineering until 2007. I am involved with the Church and usually participate in village activities. On the Parish Council I am responsible for the Annual Litter Pick, maintenance of village trees without Tree Preservation Orders, and generally attend to the repairs of village property.

Gary Denby

I became Clerk to the Parish Council in 2023. My role is to deal with the day-to-day running of the Parish, keep the financial records, manage the burial ground and any other duties that the Parish Council allocate me. All records of the Parish Council are available for inspection with prior notice as I work part time.
