  1. The Parish Church. This classic Gothic church with a tower can be seen for miles around the surrounding area. There was a time when you could go up the tower and get panoramic views. If the builders had gone up just twelve more inches the building would have been classed a cathedral and the town would be a city.
  2. Cirencester Park. This tree lined and fully laden landscape has the poet Alexander Pope to thank for its design. Near its Polo ground you can find Pope’s seat, with some trees removed in the distance so he could get a view of Kemble Churches’ spire.
