It is described as a ‘strip parish’ due to its long and narrow form, and extends to approximately 1,327 hectares from the Haseley Brook to Christmas Common. It is made up of the village of Pyrton, hamlets of Clare, Golder and Standhill, and part of the hamlet of Christmas Common.

There is a strong sense of community within Pyrton. The thriving village hall hosts many meetings and a wide variety of events. St.Mary’s Church is also greatly valued as a place for worship and also for bringing the community together for special events such as Daffodil Sunday and the annual Pyrton and Shirburn fete.
