A time capsule with a mischievious ghost

Hidden in an orchard with spectacular views of the Cotswolds and Bredon Hill, the setting of Little Washbourne church is very beautiful.

The walls are of warm local stone with Cotswold slate roofs to match and, though considerably rebuilt over the years, the structure is largely Norman.

Its interior is simple and light, with flagged floors, plastered walls, traces of Medieval wallpaintings and lovely Georgian furnishings.

The churchyard has only one grave as the ground is waterlogged - legend says it is that of a boy who drowned and now mischievously haunts the nearby Hobnails Inn.
