Upper Rissington is a village in the Cotswold district of Gloucestershire, England and is part of the Rissington ward.

The village began as the domestic site of RAF Little Rissington. The site was sold in 1996 and the quarters were modernised and sold. The technical site was developed into a Business Park and was active until very recently. In 2000 new housing was constructed in the centre part of the site, following some demolition.

In 2012 Linden and Bovis acquired the technical site and began development by demolishing the majority of the RAF support buildings, including 4 huge C-type hangars. The final solution is to provide 368 new homes, including affordable homes. The site compromises, new builds and conversions of existing buildings including the Officers Mess. Bovis and Linden have built a new school which is part of the very successful and highly respected Great Rissington School. They have also built a new Village Hall, which albeit finished is not yet available for use. They are also plans to provide, sports facilities, play parks, a new Village Square comprising 5 retail units, a gym and a business park.
