Welcome To St Mary's

For almost a thousand years St Marys Church has played its part at the centre of the village of Bampton in Oxfordshire, and today it continues to be a vibrant influence within our local community as well as a beautiful centrepiece to the village.

The future of the Church and its community depends on local support and hard work from a committed group of volunteers who ensure that St Marys remains a special place at the heart of our community.

About Visiting St Mary's Bampton

St Mary's Church is pleased to welcome visitors throughout the year, either to services, just to have a look round, or to use the church as a place of peace and reflection. The church is normally open during daylight hours all year round.

We have recently seen an increase in visitors due to the filming of the ITV drama series Downton Abbey - the fifth series in the UK is due later in 2014 - which is filmed in and around the church. Watch extra footage about the Downton weddings filmed in St Marys by clicking here.

Parking is available on the roads around the church. Coaches should park along the north side of the church wall on Church Close. Please respect our neighbours. For large groups refreshments can sometimes be made available by prior arrangement.
