Churchill is a pleasantly attractive village that is worth a visit as it has some impressive and quite unusual features. The most impressive is without the doubt the imposing 19th century All Saints Church which dominates the village. Next to the church is a grand memorial fountain, erected in 1870 by Julia, Countess of Ducie, to her father, James Haughton Langston. Nearby is the Smith Memorial, a memorial to William Smith, Father of British Geology who was born in Churchill in 1769. One of his many achievements was the publication of the first geological map of the whole country. At the bottom of Hastings Hill is the Churchill and Sarsden Heritage Centre housed in the chancel of the original 14th century parish church.More pictures of Churchill by Roger Sweet...
