Thruxton, Fyfield and Kimpton
Thruxton is internationally famous as the site of an historic car racing circuit. However, Thruxton has a very long history and it was the original home of one of the British Museum's treasures, a Roman tessellated pavement. Parts of St Peter and St Paul's church date from as early as the thirteenth century and there are some very fine brasses and tombs.

Fyfield is a small and rural village, whose church of St Nicholas also dates from the thirteenth century, one of a few churches that have not been much "restored" by the Victorians! Henry White, brother of the more famous Gilbert White of Selborne, was rector here from 1762 to 1768; his diaries are in the Bodleian Library at Oxford. The old Fyfield Manor, now a famous racehorse training establishment, the source of many national hunt winners.

Kimpton boasts a thatched bus shelter, Kimpton Manor, a delightful village green and St Peter and St Paul's church, parts of which date from the thirteenth century. Many bronze age remains and artefacts were found here in an extensive archaeoligical dig in the late 1960s. The beautiful flowers are in a window of Kimpton church during their flower festival in July 2001.
