Faringdon House, close to the church was built by the poet laureate, Henry James Pye in the C18th. Lord Berners folly was erected in the grounds in 1936 and is recognisable from a distance. Several old buildings line the streets converging on the market square and the C18th Market Hall.
The very attractive 'low' Church of All Saints which was begun in the C12th although it is likely a church stood on this spot in Saxon times, lost its tower in the C17th and now emphasises its cruciform shape. Inside there are many interesting brasses and monuments. There is a copy of an original Elizabethan cartoon in the Upton chapel commissioned by Lady Upton and depicting various events in her husband's life.
Road communications to Faringdon are good being close to the A420 by-pass linking to the M4 (J16) approximately nine miles. There is an excellent train service from both Swindon and Oxford with trains running regularly to London (Paddington) taking about an hour. Lechlade is about seven miles and Wantage about eleven.
