More on Kingsdon Village
The Kingsdon Festival is an increasingly popular annual event organised by the Kingsdon Jubilee Fund usually held every August Bank Holiday weekend. Consisting of live music and dancing, a fete with exhibitions of local crafts, dog show, various stalls, raffle, vintage cars, licensed bar, BBQ and other attractions.
The 13th Century church, lovely old kingsdon Inn, community shop, village hall, allotments, village library (housed in the former red BT telephone box) and activities all help to add to the unique spirit of this very special place.
Kingsdon is home to a variety of clubs and societies including from table tennis to knitting, croquet to canine, art to short mat bowls. See the clubs section to find out more.
The Kingsdon Chronicle is available to download for free from this website.
Most of this compact village lies on the face of the hill headed by All Saints’ church, but a few houses are on the other side where you will also find Glenda Spooner Farm (World Horse Welfare) which rehabilitates around 65 horses and ponies at a time.
The rest of the parish is farmed retaining a traditional small field structure, which is particularly beneficial to a wide range of wildlife. The National Trust property of Lytes Cary is just a mile from the village centre.
We hope you enjoy exploring this website to learn more about our village and hope to see you here soon.
