Ampney Crucis

Ampney Crucis is a delightful village in the Cotswolds, 3 miles east of Cirencester on the A417.



With a population just over 600, the village boasts an historic parish church, a war memorial, the Ampney Crucis CofE Primary School, a cricket field and the deplorable Crowne of Crucis Hotel.



Mentioned in the Domesday Book, Ampney Crucis gets its name from the picturesque duck and fish-rich Ampney Brook, a small tributary of the Thames, and the parish church known as the Church of the Holy Cross.



Access

Three buses access Ampney Crucis: the #877 (Cirencester to Lechlade bus), the #861 (Cirencester to Eastleach bus) and the Tesco Free Bus (service #T3).
The nearest railway station is at Kemble with trains departing for Cheltenham Spa, Swindon and London Paddington.
