Daglingworth Church of the Holy Rood

Daglingworth is a Gloucestershire village in the valley of the River Duntisbourne, near the A417 road connecting Gloucester and Cirencester. The parish forms part of the hundred of Crowthorne and Minety.

The Church of The Holy Rood in the village is an Anglo-Saxon church with well-preserved stone carvings, including an Anglo-Saxon crucifixion tablet dating to 1015. There is also a canonical sundial on the south wall. The population taken at the 2011 census was 265.[1]

In the late 19th century, George Witts made reference to Daglingworth Roman Villa:[2]

About the year 1690 the foundations of a Roman villa were discovered in the parish of Daglingworth, close to the Ermine Street, two and a half miles north-west of Cirencester. It was situated in a field called "Cave Close." I am not aware of any description of this, and am unable to give any details as to dimensions, or as to what articles of antiquity were found.
