People of Buckland

This building has borne witness to nationally important historical figures and events, but also to generations of villagers whose lives left few other traces in the historical record. This trail celebrates the contributions of all people – great and small – to our fascinating building.

Churchyard Trail

Walking around the outside of our church is a trip back through time. Fragments of it date back to Anglo-Saxon times, but the earliest complete part still standing dates to the 12th century, when the well-connected Sheriff of Berkshire Hugh de Buckland and his descendants controlled the village. Major rebuilding of the tower, chancel, and transepts took place in the 13th century. The churchyard is also full of interesting and important memorials to local people from the 17th century to the present day.

Stained Glass Trail

Our church is blessed with some of the finest stained glass in the area, including rare medieval survivals and beautiful 20th century painted glass, much of which was installed to commemorate villagers and people connected with the church who were killed in the First and Second World Wars.
