St Andrew's church

Ogbourne St Andrew is a small village in Wiltshire, England, 2 miles (3.2 km) north of Marlborough. The parish is on the banks of the River Og and includes the hamlets of Ogbourne Maizey and Rockley.


The Anglican Church of St Andrew is Grade I listed.[2] It has 12th-century origins and was restored by William Butterfield in 1847-49.[3] It has a ring of five bells with a 15-hundredweight tenor tuned to the key of F. It is part of the Ridgeway Benefice which also covers Ogbourne St George and Chiseldon. In the churchyard there is a round barrow,[4] excavated in 1880 by Henry Cunnington.

Rockley had a chapel of ease in the 13th century, dedicated to St Leonard; it was demolished in the 16th century. A new chapel of All Saints was built in 1872 and closed in 1961.[5]

Rockley Manor dates from the 18th century and is Grade II* listed.[6]

Former railway[edit]

The Swindon, Marlborough and Andover Railway was built through the Og valley in 1881. Ogbourne station was at Ogbourne St George; a siding at Ogbourne St Andrew was used by the nearby horse stables. The line was closed in 1961.


Local primary-level children usually go to the school in Ogbourne St George or to Marlborough.
