It is situated on the little river Windrush, about a mile from the road between Oxford and Cheltenham, and comprises 1130a. 1r. 26p. The surface is agreeably diversified with undulations; the soil is in some parts clayey, and in others a light earth resting upon limestone. The living is a perpetual curacy; net income, £57; patron, the Chancellor of the Cathedral of Salisbury: there is a parsonage-house, recently built, and the glebe consists of about an acre. The tithes were commuted for land in 1813. The church is partly Norman, and partly of later date, with a remarkable tower open by an arch to the west; the chancel is separated from the nave by a finely-pointed arch resting upon columns with beautifully-ornamented capitals, and contains some costly monuments to the family of Fettiplace, who resided in a mansion here for more than four centuries. Mrs. Anne Pytts, in 1715, endowed a school with £40 per annum.
