About Ashbury

The village of Ashbury is located in a lovely scenic area where the borders of south Oxfordshire meet with Wiltshire. It is one of a string of villages along the White Horse Downs giving access to the Ridgeway Path.

Ashbury has always been noted for its pretty cottages and fine handsome properties, its historic parish church dedicated to St. Mary the Virgin is Grade I Listed and is well worth seeing.

The Manor house was built in the 15th century and is a Grade II listed building. Ashdown House in the south of the parish is a Grade I listed building. There is a house in Chapel Lane which is a former Methodist chapel.

Recently, the historic atmosphere of the village has been heightened by the discovery of an unusual 3-D crop circle.

The village pub 'the Rose and Crown Hotel' is a 16th century coaching inn found in the center of the village
