LOCATION
East and West Hagbourne have been separate villages since the time of Edward the Confessor, when Regenbald, a priest of Cirencester, held the manor of East Hagbourne.   Regenbald continued to hold the manor after the Norman conquest of England in 1066 and compilation of the Domesday Book in 1086. Regenbald died in the reign of Henry I, who then granted East Hagbourne manor to the Augustinians Cirencester Abbey (founded 1117).   The abbey continued to hold the manor until 1539, when it surrendered its lands to the Crown in the Dissolution of the Monasteries.
The scenic surrounding countryside is designated an “A.O.N.B.”.
East Hagbourne has a 17th-century public house, the award winning Fleur de Lys, a great village pub with classic pub food.
In the local area generally are an excellent range of Private and State Schools, including those in Oxford and Abingdon.
There is a Church of England Primary School built in 1874 and situated on Main Road, it enjoys a ‘good’ ofsted rating.   Hagbourne Pre-school also received an ‘outstanding’ ofsted report in February 2018.
Opposite the primary school is Hagbourne village hall, shared by East and West Hagbourne and used regularly for village events.   The Recreation Ground at Great Mead, off New Road, is home to the recently modernized children’s playground, officially opened in 2009, the main playing field is open to the public when not being used for football club or other activities.
There is a small Post Office and a village shop in New Road, opened in 2001 and run by local volunteers.
As well as the parish church, East Hagbourne has at least 45 listed buildings. The majority of East Hagbourne's listed buildings are individual houses and cottages, particularly on Main Road and Church Close, which are mid-17th century and are all Grade II listed.
The village holds several events each year. These include an annual fun run on the May Day bank holiday, typically of 4 1⁄2 miles (7 km) to 5 1⁄2 miles (9 km), which involves a run around the surrounding area, including the villages of Blewbury and Upton. There is an annual "scarecrow trail", a village fête and, in August, a duck race on Hacca's Brook.
Nearby the expanding Town of Didcot offers comprehensive amenities including a new Shopping Centre and its Railway Station provides fast direct commuter services to Oxford Reading and up to London (Paddington). Equally road communications are excellent with the A34 a short drive away linking to the M4 at Chieveley (Junction 13)
