This wonderfully atmospheric medieval church buildings is open during daylight hours every day of the year.  

Getting here

What you need to know is that the church of Ampney St Mary is NOT in the village of Ampney St Mary - so don't go there if you want to see the church!  In medieval times, the original village of Ampney St Mary - which surrounded the church - was struck by the plague; and the villagers believed that it was a water-borne disease and so decided to move away from the brook (The Ampney) which runs past the church.  The delightful church of St Mary now stands alone in a field, surrounded by its own churchyard.

It can be found between Ampney Crucis and Poulton on the A417.  There is some hard-standing to park cars on.  There is a larger grass parking area which can be used during the summer months.  

The Crown at Ampney Brook Hotel at Ampney Crucis; the Falcon Pub at Poulton; and the Masons Arms at Meysey Hampton are great hostelries not too far away.
