Avening Parish Council
Welcome to the Avening Parish Council website Avening is a village dating back to the Saxon period. Located in a wooded valley two miles north of the town of Tetbury, in medieval times it grew around the church and later around the mills that were built for the wool industry.  The Norman Church of the Holy Cross, consecrated in 1080, replaced an earlier Saxon church, and was built at the instigation of Queen Matilda, wife of William the Conqueror.  Much of the present character of Avening originated in the 17th century with the development of the cloth mills and the cottage industries connected with them. The cloth industry was a major factor in the growth of Avening until well into the 19th century, giving it an industrial rather than agricultural outlook. Avening has a population of over 1000, making it the largest village in the South Cotswolds. It is a lively, active community, with a thriving primary school and playgroup, many other groups such as the youth club, WI and film club, a village hall, social club, two public houses, a playing field, a monthly magazine called The Villager and a golf club just outside the village.
