Discover plantation shutters in Oakley
Due to the long history of the Oakley parish, there is a broad range of property styles found throughout the village and surrounding hamlets. This makes shutters the obvious choice for the more unusually shaped windows found in older homes and cottages.
We value the faith our customers have in our service and are proud of the high-quality products we supply, so we don’t use fancy sales techniques designed to trick you. We offer our advice but let you choose the right shades, colours and styles to suit your design ideas.
Sash and bay windows are often seen throughout the county, and shutters provide a fantastic solution for both of these openings, either with café style or tier-on-tier providing excellent light control.
Shutters will also benefit your home in other ways as well as their light control and privacy aspects. Providing your property with added kerb appeal, when the louvres are closed, shutters will actually add a degree of insulation to your home, helping it stay warmer in winter, and cooler in summer, thereby affecting the amount you will need to pay on energy bills from heating or air conditioning.

The historic village and parish of Oakley has been settled since at least 6000BC, with flint axes and arrow heads being found during excavations of land before development began on the Lovell Almshouses in the 1920s. Before the Norman Conquest, the land was held by Oswulf, a thane of King Edward the Confessor.
Almost completely ringfenced by the River Great Ouse, Oakley is just four miles North West of Bedford, and can be easily accessed by the A6, which runs north to the Northamptonshire town of Rushden. An in depth description of a witch trial at Oakley in 1735 was recorded, outlining the process of ducking and weighing to establish the poor pensioner’s guilt.
Parts of the village church of St Mary’s Oakley date from the 12th century, though there is evidence to suggest a small congregation of believers met in Oakley for many years before that. The 400-year-old clock on the church tower has only 1 hand, giving time only for the approximate hour of the day. Until the 1970s, the mechanism had to be regularly wound by hand.
Both primary and secondary education is provided in Oakley, with Lincroft Academy situated adjacent to Oakley Primary, both of which can be found on Station Road. Oakley was once connected to the rail network with its own station which finally closed in 1963. Although some of the former buildings now remain, the area has been significantly redeveloped, and although the line still operates, passengers have to travel into nearby Bedford to get the train.
