Village in the Valley

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.

Please take your time to explore what Ramsbury has to offer by visiting the relevant pages on this site.


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 parishcouncil@ramsbury.org or 520045. We’d be delighted to hear from you.Ramsbury& Axford Parish Council


At last Back Lane and Oxford Street are to be resurfaced! Work will begin on February 17th and continue for around two weeks. Obviously there will be road closures (WC Notice) parking restrictions and diversions but disruption will be kept to a minimum and it is only for two weeks so please be understanding. Speed on the High Street will be monitored so please drive at appropriate speed even if the road is clearer than usual.


As part of WW1 commemorations the Parish Council and the British Legion are seeking to find information about the men from Ramsbury & Axford who went to the war and the women who stayed at home. 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. If you have a photograph of great grandpa or any other relative who fought which you would let us copy we’d be delighted to hear from you on firstworldwar@ramsbury.org or 520045
