About Moulsford

 

Moulsford is a small village set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty between the Chilterns and the river Thames.  In 1974 it was transferred from Berkshire to Oxfordshire.

The west of the parish is taken up by the foothills of the Berkshire Downs, including the Moulsford Downs (a site of special scientific interest), Moulsford Bottom and Kingstanding Hill which is traditionally associated with King Alfred and the Battle of Ashdown. 

Just north of the villlage is Moulsford Railway Bridge on the Great Western Main Line, designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel and built in 1838–39.

The village, like so many in this area, has featured in the television series, Midsomer Murders.
