Ogbourne St. George

Ogbourne Saint George is a village in the valley of the River Og bypassed by the A346 about 3 miles north of Marlborough. The river Og rises near the nearby hamlet of Draycot Foliat and flows south to meet the River Kennet. The River Og is a bourne, originally meaning a river that is dry in summer months.

Ogbourne St. George is a pleasant small village, centred on the High Street where there is an interesting variety of houses and cottages ranging from thatched, timber framed to modern.

Location map:

The parish church, St. George's, may be Norman. The three-bay arcade of the south aisle is Early English Gothic and the arcade of the north aisle is slightly later. The church's windows and bell tower are Perpendicular Gothic additions from later in the Middle Ages.

The church stands next to the manor house, a 16th century brick building that stands on the site of an earlier priory.

About a mile to the south-west is the village of Ogbourne St. Andrew, and just beyond that the hamlet of Ogbourne Maizey, both of which are on the River Og, but on the western side and therefore outside the area of the Berkshire Downs.

Ogbourne St. George is on the A346 Swindon to Marlborough road, about 3 miles north of Marlborough.
