Charvil Today

  • Despite its position on major thoroughfares and close to major population centres, the pie chart shows that Charvil has retained a generally rural character 
  • This is probably because the majority of the parish area is subject to flooding (including the nature and public access segment shown)

  • It is also apparent that very little of the parish that is not subject to flooding now remains undeveloped (10% of the parish). This lies in north Charvil and to the south of the railway bridge 
  • Existing public facilities and services are shown in the maps.
