Welcome to the website for Hurstbourne Tarrant Parish.

The Parish comprises three villages of Hurstbourne Tarrant, Ibthorpe and Upton all located in the Bourne Valley and part of the North Wessex Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.


Hurstbourne Tarrant Parish Hurstbourne Tarrant Parish
This, to my fancy, is a very nice country. It is continual hill and dell. Now and then a chain of hills higher than the rest, and these are downs or woods. This place is commonly called Uphusband, as decent a corruption of names as one would wish to meet with. However, Uphusband the people will have it. The houses of the village are in great part, scattered about, and are amongst very lofty and fine trees, the village is a sight beyond description.

William Cobbett, 1826
