It is situated on the Cotswold hills, and includes the hamlets of Charingworth and Hidcote Boyce. Stone is quarried for building purposes. The living is a vicarage* annexed to the vicarage* of Mickleton, in the diocese of Gloucester and Bristol, in the patronage of the lord chancellor. The church, a spacious stone edifice, dedicated to St. Edburgh, has a fine E. window of stained-glass. It contains monuments of the Fortescue family. There are some small charities.
