Pictures of Farnborough
Traditionally known as the last outpost of the Cotswolds, Farnborough is a true delight of stone cottages and mellow rustic brick houses.
Central to the life of the village is the beautiful mansion house, Farnborough Hall. This magnificent house was created by the Holbech family so that the two Holbech brothers could easily meet. Their other great property was the manor of Mollington which sadly, no longer exists. Farnborough Hall is owned by the National Trust and is open to the public on certain days. It dates mid-18th-century and echoes with all the romance of by-gone days. The stunning grounds alone are well worth visiting.
The lovely parish church of St.Botolph is mostly medieval, although some Norman work is evidenced. The church has a gracious spire that was built by Sir Gilbert Scott in 1875. The interior of the church is quietly serene and contains several treasures.
As you would expect, this spacious Cotswold village is amid glorious open countryside. There are two interesting ancient battle sites nearby, one which dates 1469 and the other at Cropredy dates 1644. Farnborough is but a short distance away from the delightful town of Banbury.
