Peasemore is a village and civil parish in the English county of Berkshire in the United Kingdom. It is located in the West Berkshire unitary authority, west of the A34 road and north of the town of Newbury.

Amenities[edit]

St Barnabas Church

Peasemore is a small village with a population of under 300 people. The nearest village shop and primary school is in Chieveley. Peasemore once had a village school, built in 1850, but it was closed in the 1950s. The old village post office in Hailey Lane closed around 1980 and was converted to a private residence. It still has a mail collection box in its wall, but this is only used to receive private mail now. However, the village is still home to a popular public house, The Fox & Hounds, a well used village hall, a cricket club & a large church dedicated to St Barnabas.

Transport[edit]

Bus travel from Newbury is provided by Newbury and District service 107.[1]

Sport[edit]

The village has a cricket team, who were 2009 Brightwalton sixes champions. In 2010, they returned to defend their title but were beaten by West Ilsley in the final.

History[edit]

Peasemore is mentioned in the Domesday Book. There is a plate on the village hall relating the entry.

In 1978, Peasemore won Berkshire's best-kept village competition. The plaque for the award is placed on the entrance to St Barnabas' church.
