  • This is a little walk from the nearest road, but well worth it. This historic church is still in use and retains many of it's early features including enclosed pews

  • This small church is situated in the middle of a field. It is a really peaceful and serene setting. Inside, it appears to have changed very little since the middle ages. A really fascinating place.

  • If you have a chance, take a nice 35 -45 minutes walk one way from Burford. The path is really nice and easy with some stals (low gates for dogs). You can meet cows on the fields. Otherwise you can drive just few minutes and then access without obstacles (one cattle grid). Church is lovely, located on the hill. Check its history because is very interesting.
  • At a 40 minutes nice country side walk distance from Burford (6 minutes by car), you can find this nice little church. From the 13th century church of St Oswald, it retains its old mysticism and old fashion style. While it's difficult to find it open (see my pictures for opening times), you can take interior pictures from the windows. Use HDR photo app, and put the phone' s camera very close to the window. You'll appreciate well preserved old paintings on the walls. From here you can keep walking to the next close church: St Mary's Church, Swinbrook
