Wiltshire SN6 7RD
Inglesham is truly a hidden gem just off the A361 road, about 1 mile (1.6 km) south-west of Lechlade-upon-Thames in Gloucestershire.
It is found at the end of a short lane that goes nowhere else and consists of a small collection of old buildings including the 13th century Church of St John the Baptist, Inglesham old vicarage and 17th century farmhouse (formerly a watermill).
The open fields between this tiny settlement and the A361 road contain the site of the ‘lost’ Anglo-Saxon village of Inglesham, part of which has been designated as a Scheduled Ancient Monument. Inglesham has been inhabited since pre-historic times and it is recorded as a settlement in written records of 960 AD.
Church of St John the Baptist
The hamlet’s gem is an exquisitely beautiful and fascinating church, set on a slight mound just above the surrounding water meadows and close to the River Thames.
Thanks to its remoteness and the active interest of Arts & Crafts Movement leader William Morris, St John’s escaped the attention of the Victorian restorers. Over 700 years of unbroken history are visible in the fabric and furnishings of St John’s.
