Dunsden Green or Dunsden is a village in the civil parish of Eye & Dunsden in South Oxfordshire, about 3 miles (5 km) northeast of Reading, Berkshire. Until 1866 it was in the Oxfordshire part of Sonning parish.
Nearby is the former vicarage. The future First World War poet Wilfred Owen lived here from September 1911 to February 1913 when he served as a lay assistant to the parish priest, Rev. Herbert Wigan.
In November 2007 a new community orchard was established by the planting of a Blenheim Orange apple tree on the village green by Lord Phillimore, the main local landowner. The orchard will be beside the village green.
