Kingstone Winslow is a picturesque hamlet in Berkshire, within the parish of Ashbury and almost a part of that village, separated from it across the brook.

Kingstone Winslow is surrounded by farmland and includes a pretty duck pond and an ancient mill with overshot water wheel which has been restored to working order by its owners.

Kingstone Coombes

Kingstone Coombes is the name given to hill-slopes an coombs south of Kingstone Winslow, up the steep slope of the hill. There is no village there any more but farms. Kingstone Coombes had a brief appearance in the national press in 2009 when a crop circle in the form of a 600-foot jellyfish pattern appeared in a barley field there. The culprits have never been caught.
