About Frampton on Severn
There are village greens and village greens but few can beat the one at Frampton, for sheer size and splendour, the green at Frampton surely remains unbeatable. Surrounded by delightful black and white half timbered cottages and handsome georgian houses, the village green at Frampton has three ponds and a cricket ground all within its 22 acres! The Bell Inn, sited close by assures cricketers and supporters alike of genial company and liquid refreshment following a hard days play.
Reputed as the birthplace of Jane Clifford, Henry 11's mistress, "Fair Rosamund" reputedly poisened by Queen Eleanor in 1177. She is long remembered in Frampton - the village green is famously known as Rosamund's Green.
Frampton Court is the most outstanding house on the green, built in the 1730's for Richard Clutterbuck, a Bristol customs official, it is Palladian in style, and because even if those far off days privacy mattered, the house is almost entirely screened by trees. The grounds to Frampton Court are utterly enchanting, a canal in the grounds is overlooked by an Orangery and graceful Peacocks strut around well manicured lawns.
In the village, a footpath runs across a water-meadow leading to the Church of St. Mary and beside it is the Sharpness Canal which links Gloucester to the River Severn. From this unique vantage point the sight of small sea-going craft within a few feet of the church tower is an occasional attraction.
Many farms and lush pastureland surround this ancient village and there are several hospitable inns in the area - the local towns of stroud and gloucester are within easy reach, both of which provide a number of attractions, e.g. river trips, bowling alley, museums, antique shops and an excellent antique centre. Modern day shopping is taken care of by the several supermarkets to be found in both local towns.
