St Bartholomew’s is situated in the market town of Newbury. The town is located in the strategically important M4 corridor, with all the advantages that position brings.
We are an hour from London, and accessible from Oxford, Reading, Swindon and Southampton with excellent transport links by rail and motorway.
Newbury enjoys a healthy economy and service sector, with a wide range of cafes, bars and restaurants in addition to a theatre, cinema and racecourse. Like other towns located close to the Thames Valley, the town has developed a specialism in high tech industries. Large employers such as Vodafone have chosen to locate here and in doing so have encouraged a boom in young professionals choosing Newbury as a place to live.
