Ring Ousel

Ring Ousel

Welcome to Owslebury and Morestead Parish. It is a lovely place in which to live with a village atmosphere and style of life, the beauty and tranquillity of the open countryside and a great community spirit. The parish is fortunate in having numerous Rights of Way, including part of the Ox Drove, South Downs Way, The Monarch Way and The Pilgrims’ Way.  Most of these are very well used and offer wonderful views to parishioners and visitors from near and afar. In addition there are many clubs and societies in the parish or nearby, as well as a host of attractions for all ages. Our medieval churches and pub add to the character of day to day life in this historic parish.

We want to ensure our parish flourishes whilst keeping its countryside character. To help us do so there are a couple of polices which we hope all parishioners will follow as part of the good neighbourly practice which is central to our way of life..

The Ring Ousel shown on the left has historic connections to Owslebury and in the pronunciation of its name – click HERE for more information.

This community website provides a flavour of life in the parish. It is still under construction, so please bear with us and report any glitches using the Contact form
