Little Washbourne (Gloucestershire)


Anglican: St Mary

An isolated Norman church, the interior is virtually unchanged since the 18th century. St Mary’s closed for public worship in the 1970’s and is now under the care of the Churches Conservation Trust.

The civil parish of Little Washbourne was transferred from Worcestershire to Gloucestershire in 1844. The ecclesiastical parish remained in the Diocese of Worcester.
