Abbey Hill is a civil parish that covers the Two Mile Ash, Kiln Farm, and Wymbush districts of Milton Keynes.[2] As the first tier of Local Government, the parish council is responsible for the people, living and working in this area of Milton Keynes.

The Parish was formed in 2008 as part of a revision of parishes of the Borough of Milton Keynes:[citation needed] the districts were previously part of a parish called Bradwell Abbey. It is bounded by Millers Way (H2), the A5, Watling Street (V4), and Dansteed Way (H4).[3]
