Acton Turville is located in South Gloucestershire, close to the Wiltshire border and the M4 motorway (Junction 18).
Unfortunately, since our railway station was closed in 1968 (thank you Dr. Beeching!) and, although the dilapidated buildings remain, the only way to reach Acton Turville is by road. However, we have a thriving pub, a delightful 12th century church, a bustling village shop and post office and a highly regarded primary school (serving our village and our neighbours in Badminton and Tormarton). In addition the villagers have recently raised many thousands of pounds in donations and grants to refurbish our children’s play area in the recreation ground. No mean feat for such a small community as ours. We are rightly proud of our village.
We hope you will find time to visit us and see why we love living here. A warm welcome is waiting for you.
If you do visit, please respect the speed limits on the local roads – many horse riders and cyclists use the roads and our Community Speed Watch team are active throughout the area to help keep everyone safe!
