Ampney St Peter
The Ampney Brook flows near the village, which is near to Ampney Crucis and Ampney St Mary, and is about four miles east of Cirencester. The village takes its name from the brook and the local church. The village is the hometown of Dressage Olympians Laura Bechtolsheimer and Lara Griffith. Locally the town was known as Easington.
In August 2012 the villages postbox was painted Gold by Royal Mail to signify the gold medal earned by Laura Bechtolsheimer in the 2012 Olympic team dressage.
