  • .... So we were there a couple of times, have marvelled at the Fettiplace stainless men in the Church (superimposed statues, their heads propped up... that's quite eccentric) and on the cemetery the 4 buried here Mitford Sisters (Diana, unity and Nancy side by side, Pamela a bit far down the same path) visited. You are not so well known in Germany, so it's worth very to read Swinbrooks M. Charles great biography of unity ahead of a visit ('I thumbed in the vogue, saith me the Guide"). Or one of the many books from them and about them in English. (Our memories of her childhood in Swinbrook: wait for me!) All "Mitford history" breathes in the local pub, and if you know a little about it, history to life awakened here. We failed it unfortunately, to take part in a church service, but these were very well attended and the singing echoed Merry and powerful us over from the cemetery of (there can be parked also!) trails through the fields, start including after Burford. All very nice and very old English!

  • beautiful old church viewed on a nice autumnal day, the graves of the Mitford sisters were nice to see, as was a later trip to the Swann inn which was their stomping ground  more »
  • Beautiful old church building in the village of Swinbrook, just outside Burford. The main building days from the 12th century and there is a rather peculiar memorial to a local family of dignataries, descended from the Normans called the Fettiplace family.
