Feature Sets

Collingbourne Kingston sits beside the River Bourne, about 8 miles south of Marlborough. The S nave arcade and the two western bays of the N arcade date from the early 13thc. A third bay on the N side was added in the 14thc. The chancel may date from the 13thc but has been restored, and the chancel arch seems to date from the 19thc. The W tower is Perpendicular.


In Domesday Book, the Abbey of St Peter at Winchester holds land at Collingbourne Kingston; there is no mention of a church.


Interior Features



The clerestory is Victorian.

The black and white photographs in this report were taken in the early 1990s, when an organ stood at the E end of the S aisle. In 1997 this instrument was replaced and the new organ installed at the W end of the church. The colour photograph of the interior of the church postdates this change.
