Oxenhall St Anne


The Parish

The parish of Oxenhall lies in northwestern Gloucestershire, indeed it forms part of the border with neighbouring Herefordshire. Oxenhall is located about a mile northwest of the market town of Newent in a network of lanes to the north of the B4221 road which links Newent with the Herefordshire town of Ross on Wye. There is not much of a village as such to Oxenhall, merely a scatter of farms and cottages across the parish. Oxenhall is sited in pleasant rolling countryside largely used for pasture. The parish lies in the drainage area of the Ell Brook, a tributary of the River Leadon which heads southeastwards to the Severn. The parish is sited at about 50 metres above sea level but land rises and falls 10 metres or so around it. The parish was of average size for this area at around 1,900 acres and supported in the region of 300 parishioners. In Domesday times the land was held by Roger de Lacy and supported 7 ploughs.

The Church

St Anne's church is located to the south of the major crossroads of lanes that probably is the heart of the parish. Whilst the church looks ancient it is, in fact, largely a Victorian rebuild. Only the western tower is from an earlier building and that is dated to the 14th century. The remainder dates from the 1860s whence it was built imitating the Early English style. The attractive use of local red sandstone gives the building a lovely glow in evening sunshine. The church sits in a very open graveyard which is raised above the road level and retained by a stone wall. Access is via a sloping path which passes through a stylish lych gate. As the building stands on a ridge there are commanding views all round and few trees to block those views.
