Parish History

Exploring our parish's history

The parish of South Cerney and Cerney Wick has a long and rich history, including the granting of a royal charter in AD 999 and the discovery of unique medieval carvings in All Hallows Church in 1912.

These events - and much more of the villages' past - are chronicled in the Trust's publications.

But, thanks to the efforts of Trust members, we are always adding to our bank of knowledge whether in the form of ongoing research, a newly identified photograph or fresh anecdotes about times gone by.

You'll find the latest items here as soon as we are able to share them.
