The pretty village of Upton lies in an Area of “Outstanding Natural Beauty” on the edge of the Berkshire Downlands, some 2 ½ miles south of Didcot and within easy reach of the surrounding towns of Wantage, Wallingford, Abingdon, Oxford and Newbury via the fast A34 dual carriageway. The expanding town of Didcot offers an excellent range of amenities, including a thriving shopping centre with supermarkets and banks and a mainline station providing fast commuter services to Oxford, Reading, Swindon and up to London (Paddington) in well under the hour.
The village itself has many period properties, some dating back to the Middle Ages and is historically linked with farming and agriculture. There is a Methodist chapel and a parish church called St Mary the Virgin whose origins date back to at least 1086, being mentioned in the Domesday Book.
In the area there is a good range of state and private schools, including two excellent primary schools in the villages of Chilton and Blewbury, all located a short distance from Upton. Didcot has the only two single sex secondary schools in the county, St Birinus and Didcot Girls's School. Private schools of particular note nearby include Bradfield College, Pangbourne College, Downe House, Cranford House, Moulsford Preparatory, Abingdon Boys and The School of St Helen & Katharine.
All round the village there are numerous footpaths and bridleways leading onto the Downs and the ancient Ridgeway Path, and across delightful countryside to the neighbouring villages.
