Ramsbury is a pre-medieval village steeped in history and tradition. Situated in the picturesque Kennet valley; Marlborough is 7 miles to the West and Hungerford 5 miles East.
Before the A4 was built (by-passing Ramsbury) the village was the most important centre for the area. To this day there is a strong connection with the past, maintained by the modern Bishop of Ramsbury.
Today's community boasts a thriving primary school, a large surgery, shops and a wide range of clubs, societies and services.

WANTED Fit, enthusiastic walker to take over leading the Boundary Walk from 2015.Our present fit, enthusiastic leader Ian Ritchie is retiring and ideally we’d like to find someone this year so that they can learn the ropes from him.The task is not onerous(only one walk per year through lovely countryside). Since the Walk was reinstated over 50 years ago it has continued every year except when foot and mouth caused a problem so we are anxious that this custom continues.
If you feel you could help please contact email@example.com or 520045. We’d be delighted to hear from you.Ramsbury& Axford Parish Council**********

We can get basic information from various websites(335 men went to the war)but we would like if possible to get photographs and/or details of their lives.
