This village where Viscount Falkland, the Secretary of State to Charles I, played host to scholars such as Ben Johnson was on the verge of dereliction has now been saved by grants which recognise its importance as an area of outstanding interest.

The fourteenth century church of St Michael has a battlemented tower and a cool spacious interior of soaring arches. The village pub, The Falkland Arms, is named after the seventeenth century lord of the manor. Nearby lie the famous Rollright Stones erected 3500 years or more ago. This has a ring of standing stones known as The King's Men, with a single stone, the King's Stone a short distance away.

One of the beautifully restored thatched cottages is pictured in our photograph.
