In Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire, you can find the village and civil parish of Buckland which has a mere population of just over 250 residents. Located near the border of Worcestershire and only 9 miles south of Evesham, Buckland is only a stone’s throw from Broadway and is located on a single road just off of the B4632.
Buckland only has one road, and that road abruptly stops in the village. For this reason many visitors often miss the village on their way in to the Cotswolds. However, this is one village which should not be missed by anyone because in Buckland you will find the magnificent St. Michaels Church which is filled with unique and fascinating historical artifacts and works of art.
Most of the St. Michaels Church was built back in the 13th and 14th centuries and features a porch on the northern side as well as south-north aisles, a west tower as well as a chancel. The pews themselves are of the Jacobean style and the Holy Water stoup, which was hand carved into the north doorway is a magnificent piece of medieval design. There is also a 15th century front set as well as 17th century benches located in the church along with a 1615 commemoration inscription.
Buckland is definitely a sleepy little town that you do not want to miss. While going from Broadway to the Cotswolds or vice versa, you have to take the time to stop off in Buckland if not for anything else other than the medieval church.
