Situated on the edge of Wiltshire and Berkshire, steeped in history, Ramsbury was once a Saxon metropolis known as ‘Rammesburi‘ or ‘Raven’s burh’’, on the old west road from London to Bath. Ramsbury today is famed for its outstanding natural beauty of chalk streams, river meadows and ancient trees. Old Saxon stones can be found in the present Holy Cross Church. The village retains many excellent facilities including fantastic pubs, local shops, post office and an outstanding school and pre-school. The Ramsbury Raven; our views are our own but we’re here to share news and interesting stuff about this awesome village.
