Location and general description

A small Gloucestershire market town situated on the lower reaches of the River Coln just before it meets the Thames. It lies just 3 Km downstream from Quenington, Gloucs, and about 7 Km west of Lechlade on Thames, Glous. Today fairford is known for the neighbouring airbase RAF Fairford and the Cotswold Water Park, though it also contains the gem of St Mary's Church.


St Mary’s Church 

Renounded for posessing the completest set of medieval stained glass windows in the world (which the photographs below fail to do justice to).

My main interest in Fairford are the KEBLE, READY and MORGAN families.
