  • We walk along the main street plus a short shoping, it is an old town that has remodeled the houses without stopping to renew them, more inside than on the outside. The church is from 1700 and was built on another from 1400 because it did not resist its repair. It has a watch probably 1700 with all its machinery in sight that shows how a floor clock works in reality, a work of engineering and art

  • Relatively ordinary from the outside, but full of interest inside: two AMAZING triple-decker funerary monuments; charming medieval stained glass; medieval stalls with misericords said to be from Burford Priory; and interesting wall tablets. Well worth a detour!
  • Beautiful old church building in the village of Swinbrook, just outside Burford. The main building days from the 12th century and there is a rather peculiar memorial to a local family of dignataries, descended from the Normans called the Fettiplace family.
