Enborne is a village and civil parish to the west of Newbury, West Berkshire.

The River Enborne, which shares its name, forms the southern border of the Parish, with the railway and the River Kennet forming the border to the north. Largely rural in nature, the parish includes a number of farms, some private parkland, and woodland, with houses dispersed into small hamlets across the area. The south east corner of the parish where it borders the suburbs of Newbury, Wash Common contains the majority of the parish population.

There are some 735 inhabitants in Enborne with Enborne Primary School serving the local population and surrounding areas.

The village name has had many variant spellings in the past, including Anebourne in 1086, and Enbourne, Enborn, Enbourn in the last 200 years.

Enborne Copse, to the north, contains an area of ancient woodland and has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

The site of the historic First Battle of Newbury (20th September 1643), now farmland , lies near the eastern border of the Parish.
