All about Avening
Avening Conservation Area   Avening is a large, busy village whose character has been profoundly influenced by the exceptionally attractive valley in which it has developed.   The village, which is typical of the Stroud Valleys' "cloth settlements", has grown along a complex network of roads and lanes that radiate outwards from the valley floor to climb the surrounding hillsides. The conservation area comprises the two older parts  of Avening, including the landscape setting of certain  parts of the village.  Click here to see the 2000 Conservation Statement
Avening Defence Line Survey 2012   An HER project  focusing on a section of the GHQ Line Green defence around Avening, including the tank ditch and ‘pill boxes’. The GHQ lines were static linear defences constructed under General Ironside in preparation for the expected German invasion. These lines were constructed in June 1940 but by the beginning of 1941 they were no longer regarded as being of value and large lengths fell into disuse. Written by Emma Slater MA.
