St Mary’s, Great Washbourne

St Mary’s church in Great Washbourne is a beautiful, historic church which features in Simon Jenkins’ book ‘England’s Thousand best churches’.

It is also a living church where the local community meet for regular services and which is used for various other community events during the year.

From Easter through to the end of summer time the church is open daily to welcome visitors. At other times, a local neighbour will be able to let you in - see the church noticeboard for more details.

We regularly collect items for the North Cotswold Foodbank.
