Ampney St Mary
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
There are really two distinct parts of Ampney St Mary. The largest part is a cluster of attractive Cotswold cottages. But as you look around the cottages you'll realise there's something missing; there's no church.
That's because the second part of the village, in the form of the historic parish church of St Mary's, is actually located about a mile away from the rest of the village. Its worth making the journey, though, for within St Mary's is a wonderful set of medieval wall paintings.
