St Swithin

Prepare yourself for surprises when you go into this church, from the outside nothing looks untoward, except that the tower is clearly Saxon, and the whole of the rest of the building is obviously very much later.


All Saints

Tucked away in a wooded corner on the edge of East Garston, All Saints is a pretty and well cared for church.
