"memories of the 1950s" Finchingfield by uglyscot

Finchingfield Travel Guide: 6 reviews and 14 photos

My father's eldest brother used to own The Stores in Finchingfield . One weekend we set off in our souped up Ford V8 Pilot [ex-police car] to pay a visit. I remember it as a typical English village with a green, a stream running through it, and a church. While the adults [mother, father and my grandmother] would be chatting to my uncle and his wife, my brother and I would go to explore with my cousin.

The church of St John the Baptist largely dates from the 14th Century, though parts of the tower were built in the 12th. Century A spire was blown down during a gale in 1658 and was not rebuilt and the bell is now in a cupola at the top of the tower.
