Situated in the heart of the beautiful Test Valley, the parish of Abbotts Ann includes areas around the village itself, namely Little Ann, Little Park, Abbotts Ann Down and an area of Anna Valley.

Located just under three miles from the market town of Andover and a short drive away from the historic centres of Salisbury and Winchester, Abbotts Ann is a thriving community with an award-winning village shop, church, state of the art primary school, nursery school and two pubs.

Its residents are proud of where they live, with many taking an active role in the annual village fete, running the community village shop and joining in the numerous clubs and social occasions the village and its surrounding areas provide.

From May 2020 everyone visiting this village web site will be able to read the Parish Magazine in book form on-line.

Please do enjoy and explore our website, where you will find information about much of what Abbotts Ann has to offer, both in its amenities and clubs/societies. We would also welcome your feedback and openly encourage you to contact us with your news and views.

Why not start by looking at the information about the amenities within the village.
