All Saints Church, Down Ampney

Recent Photograph of All Saints Church (Down Ampney)

This church is making as much as possible from its connections with the composer Ralph Vaughan-Williams, with an exhibition under the tower. The church is very picturesque outside and inside. It has an Early English west tower and spire; inside are transitional arcades with painted decoration. It is however over-restored and the transepts and chancel are virtually rebuilt.

[John adds] Ralph Vaughan-Williams was born in Down Ampney, where his father Rev Arthur Vaughan-Williams was Vicar.
