East Garston

East Garston is on the River Lambourn and lies mainly just off the road between Great Shefford and Lambourn in The Valley of the Racehorse. The road through the village is called Front Street and is on the northern side of the river. On the other side of the river is Back Street. There are many old buildings, especially in Front Street. Thatched roofs, flint walling, red brick and timber framing are in abundance. An unusual feature is the individual bridges across the river needed to access some of the properties. All these features combine to make East Garston a very attractive village.

Location map:

The parish church is the Church of All Saints, which is approached through the grounds of the adjacent Manor Farm, is Late Norman of flint, with a later south aisle and porch and a north chancel chapel. The church was heavily restored by the Victorians and little of the original building remains visible apart from the Norman door inside the south porch.

There is also a Friends Meeting House in the village.

East Garston is about 3 miles south-east of Lambourn and 7 miles north-east of Hungerford.
