Steeple Claydon

The steeple on St Michael's church can be seen as one approaches the village. Many believe mistakenly that Steeple Claydon is so called because of this, but the manor of Stepul Claydone is mentioned in the Domesday Book. The steeple and tower were not built until the mid-19th century.
