St Thomas Church
This simple little church, with pre-Norman origins, stands in an idyllic spot beside a water meadow next to the River Lambourn. Its village has long since vanished, but the spirit of the villagers shines through in the church’s simple craftsmanship, glorious Medieval wallpaintings and fabulous tombs. www.visitchurches.org.uk
Wyevale Garden Centres
Far from its current horticultural status, the centre started life as a caravan sales business! It was developed into a garden centre in 1986. www.wyevalegardencentres.co.uk
