St John the Baptist
Ebbesbourne Wake

Ebbesbourne Wake is a small village tucked away in the hidden valley of the River Ebble, within the Cranbourne Chase and west Wiltshire Downs area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The existing stone church of St John the Baptist first appeared some time after the Norman Conquest and the existing font was installed in 1224, with the bell tower being added in the 15th or early 16th century. The five church bells can be heard across the village on a Tuesday night when the team practices and whenever a service is held.
