LOCATION
Aldworth is a small and much prized rural village lying high up on the Berkshire Downs approximately 600ft above sea level, close to the ancient Ridgeway Path and in a designated “Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty”.  The village, is historically linked to agriculture and farming and this way of life still continues today thus retaining its unspoilt charm and character with there having been little intrusive development.


There are two well-respected local Inns namely ”The Bell” in the village square and the thatched “Four Points” as well as a notable church St Mary’s, which dates from the 12th century and is well worth visiting to see the 14th century monuments to the De La Beche family, known as the Aldworth Giants. There is a cricket field by the newly built Village Hall, the latter providing numerous social and community activities.


Located just off the B4009 road to Newbury and only a 5 minute drive from Streatley / Goring on Thames where there are good shopping facilities and amenities including a mainline station providing fast commuter services up to London (Paddington) in under the hour.


The village also has good road communications for the major centres of Newbury, Reading, Oxford and the M4 motorway at Junctions 12 (Theale) or 13 (Chieveley). The A.34 at East Ilsley linking the South Coast with the Midlands is also within a short drive. 


N.B. Crossrail services are scheduled to be commencing from Reading which together with the electrifying of the line will significantly improve travelling times to central London destinations.
