Local Information

All Saints Church – Down Ampney Village

All Saints church was founded by the Knights Templar in 1265, though much of its current shape is the result of a Victorian rebuilding. The striking spire dates to the 14th century, when the south porch was added.

The church is notable for its excellent stained glass, much of it Victorian or modern. The interior is a symphony of woodwork, notably the intricately carved south transept screen and pulpit. The Victorian north transept screen incorporates Jacobean panelling and a coat of arms.

For more information or to join a group please contact Canon John Swanton
