Historic Buildings

St Mary's Church

St Mary's Church has a font that dates back to the original Norman church on the site. Originally dedicated to St Bartholomew, it was re-named after the "Mother of Our Lord" as a desperate plea by villagers to save them from the Black Death.

Ufton Court

Ufton Court is a Tudor manor house with medieval origins. The house has many hidden priest holes, cunningly concealed behind moving walls and under floorboards. Within the gardens can still be seen a series of large medieval fishponds.

Folly Farm

Folly Farm is a fine example of a Lutyens house and includes a William & Mary House. The garden is a Gertrude Jykll garden.

Three Kings Jack's Booth

The only remaining pub within the two villages lies on the Bath Road, once a busy coaching inn. Originally named Three Kings Jack's Booth, it was named after a wealthy cloth merchant, Jack of Newbury, who used it to rest on his travels from Newbury to London, and to cut deals with local wool producers. It's now called The Spring Inn.
