Fosbury is a small village in Wiltshire, England, on the eastern edge of the county, near Hampshire. It is about 11 miles (18 km) southeast of Marlborough and 7 miles (11 km) south of Hungerford, Berkshire. With few inhabitants, it forms part of the civil parish of Tidcombe and Fosbury, which has a parish meeting.[1]

The Anglican Christ Church is Grade II* listed.[2] It was built in 1854-56 by S.S. Teulon and declared redundant in 1979.[3]

On both sides of the parish boundary with Tidcombe lies the Iron Age hill fort of Fosbury Camp.
