Frampton on Severn lies about 10 miles south of Gloucester on the eastern side of the River Severn.
The Village Green in Frampton is said to be the longest village green in England, and is about 22 acres in size. Cricket is played on The Green outside the Bell Inn, one of the two Pubs on The Green, the other being The Three Horseshoes at the opposite end of The Green.
The area around The Green has been designated a Conservation Area, the range of Architecture spanning several centuries ranges from “ Cruck Cottages” to impressive Tudor and Georgian houses.
Much of the village forms part of the Frampton Court Estate, owned by the Clifford family. Frampton Court is a Georgian stately home set in the estate grounds and tucked away in the park and gardens is a stunning Orangery, a beautiful and eccentric 18th century garden house, and magnificent 16th century Wool Barn. You can only visit by appointment, however each year Frampton country fair is held in 30 acres of the beautiful parkland of Frampton Court Estate
