This is the most widely known village of Berkshire – this is mainly thanks to the thousands of servicemen who have passed through ‘The Garrison’. A major part of the camp lies in the neighbouring village of Barkham.


Back in the 13th and 14th century, Ashampstead was known as Esshamstede. Ashampstead is situated on a hilly ground in well-wooded country which is 9 miles from Newbury and 10 miles from Reading. For a number of years, the regular bus service has been stopped throughout the village but there is a social bus which takes passengers from Ashampstead and neighbouring villages to Reading and home again on Friday afternoons.


Barkham dates back to 951 AD; this was when a Saxon thane gave Bloreham to the monks of Abingdon Abbey. Barkham is situated three miles near Wokingham at the edge of Windsor Great Forest.
