The Church of St Mary the Virgin is an Anglican church in the village of Bampton, Oxfordshire, England which in recent times has experienced a big uplift in visitors due to the church featuring in scenes, including weddings, of the T.V. series Downton Abbey. There was probably a church on the site during Saxon times with the current Church the result of remodelling in 1270.

This evening, I visited Chester in N.W. England where sites of interest included Roman heritage, River Dee, Cathedral, interesting architecture, impressive Town Hall,canal dating from 1772, very old shopping galleries and a Roman amphitheatre.

Today we visited Chedworth Roman Villa and Hampton Court Palace, both in England.
