The Upper Kennet News is a free issue monthly magazine produced and distributed by volunteers to the 900+ homes in the upper Kennet valley. This beautiful part of the world starts 3 miles west of Marlborough, Wiltshire England and encompasses the parishes of Fyfield and West Overton with East Kennet, Avebury, Winterbourne Monkton, Berwick Bassett and Broad Hinton. These lovely villages nestle amongst the ancient landscape featuring the world heritage sites of Avebury Circle, West Kennet Long Barrow and Silbury Hill. For others, it is also the centre of crop circle activity in England.

If you are visiting this site from abroad, we hope that you will find some interesting articles that will encourage you to visit the area when you come to the UK.
