Leave Faringdon town centre on the A417 Lechlade Road and after approximately two miles, you reach the small village of Buscot, the last Oxfordshire village before crossing the county line into Gloucestershire.
Buscot, with its population of only 173 (2011 Census), is probably most well known for Buscot Park, a beautiful National Trust Property housing a notable collection of paintings, an Italian water garden and the Four Seasons walled gardens.
Carry on past Buscot Park into the village itself and you will come across Buscot Lock and adjoining picnic site beside the river. From here, you can take the popular Thames Walk into the Gloucestershire village of Lechlade on the fringe of the Cotswolds.
Located nearby is the Buscot Tea Room which serves amazing cakes and cream teas and conveniently situated within the village shop.
The church at Buscot was built towards the end of the thirteenth century although the chancel arch is thought to be from an earlier period. Further restoration work in the fifteenth century added the small tower and increased the size of the building.
