All Saints Church is a Norman foundation, was mostly rebuilt in the 18th-century. Parts of the nave date from about 1300. The church is noted for its many memorials, mainly to residents of Ditchley. Lord Rochester, the 17th-century poet of Charles II’s Court, is interred here in the crypt and his and a number of other coffin plates are displayed in the baptistery. There is a ring of 6 bells.
Spelsbury is part of the rural Chase Benefice lying in rolling countryside in north-west Oxfordshire on the edge of the Cotswolds. It is an area of outstanding natural beauty. The benefice encompasses parishes from the Evenlode and Glyme valleys and stretches from the north-east to the south of Chipping Norton. The Benefice was formed in 2001 being a combination of two previous Benefices divided in part by the A44 trunk road running from Worcester to Oxford. It consists of the villages of Chadlington, Spelsbury and Ascott-under-Wychwood to the south of the A44 and Enstone to the north. The main centres of population are in Enstone and Chadlington, although each of the four villages has its own church and congregations.
