Welcome to the Kintbury Parish Council website

The predominantly rural Parish, centred on the village of Kintbury, is located in West Berkshire, England, where it nestles on the banks of the River Kennet between the towns of Newbury and Hungerford. The village has a convenient railway station, providing ready access to London Paddington and Reading, and is within 2 miles of the A4 and 10 miles of the M4. The Kennet and Avon canal runs through the village as does National Cycle route 4.  Much of the Kennet Valley adjacent to the village forms part of an SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest) and the whole parish sits within the large North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Services in the village include the Church of England parish church, primary school, a post office, the corner stores, farm shop and a pet shop. Thirsty residents are served by two pubs, the Dundas Arms and the Blue Ball.

Parish Council provided and managed facilities include the Gladstone Memorial Recreation Ground which hosts tennis, bowls and football clubs, as well as indoor sports facilities at the Kintbury Jubilee Centre. Also on the site is a large, well equipped children's playground and a skate park.

In addition there is the public green space, Miss Lawrence field, in the centre of the village and the wildflower meadow at Christchurch cemetery.
