Organised and supported by villagers to raise funds for upkeep of the local church and our Village Hall this event offers a unique opportunity to visit this very special Cotswold village. During the afternoon you can amble through a selection of beautiful private gardens. You can browse the stalls enjoy cream teas, homemade cakes or ice creams, see a miniature Atkinson Steam Lorry, play garden games and enjoy a tractor ride through farmland with sensational views

The church is known for its unusual dovecote above the chancel and its quite exceptional Norman arches in the chancel and sanctuary. The chancel arches, and those leading to the altar, are among the best in Gloucestershire, if not in Britain. The church is also the highest in Gloucestershire, and boasts a wonderful Norman tympanum above the south door. It is said by those who know that it is well worth taking a detour to explore the church and its striking collection of Norman arches and decorative features. On this special afternoon you cannot only soak up the atmosphere, made more special with glorious flower displays but you can also hear the bells and visit the bell tower. A very special feature this year are the new ecological initiatives including a Coronation Wildflower Meadow and Eco-loo
