Ardington and Lockinge are two civil parishes within the Vale of White Horse district, centred about 2 miles (3 km) east of Wantage, Oxfordshire, that share a parish council.

The combined parish council was created through the merger of previously separate parish councils for Ardington and Lockinge in 2012.[1] It covers the villages of Ardington, East Lockinge and West Lockinge, as well as the hamlets of Ardington Wick and some remnants of Betterton, a 'lost', depleted small settlement.[2] Running through the area is a stretch of the Great Western Main Line between Didcot and Swindon which in common with the Vale of White Horse is drained by the Ock. The majority of land and property in the area is owned and managed by the Lockinge Estate. The total area is 26.12km².
