Welcome to Holy Trinity Church, Ardington

The Church of Holy Trinity in Ardington dates from c.1200 (nave, chancel and north doorway) and is in the Early English style. It was restored and enlarged at the cost of Lord Wantage in 1887. Ardington and East and West Lockinge are essentially estate villages nestling at the foot of the Berkshire Downs with much of the property owned by the Lockinge Estate.The estate extends to approximately 7500 acres of farmland and 210 domestic and commercial units. The villages are classic Victorian estate villages. Many footpaths lead through them and through woodlands planted in 1993 on a hillside with views over the villages, older woodlands and the Downs. A series of lakes and connecting streams run through the two parishes.

The Millennium Window

Dove window in Holy Trinity Church, Ardington by painter and architectural glass artist, Sally Scott. The window was commissioned by Earl Cadogan as part of the renovation and restoration programme undertaken for the millennium. The window replaces an ancient door, too damaged and unsafe to use, and provides a welcome source of natural light in the nave of the church.

“Jesus was baptised too. And as he was praying, heaven was opened and the Holy Spirit descended on him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven: “You are my son, whom I love.” St Luke 4:21-2
