The ruined chancel of the old Holy Rood Church at the Lawns, today
I have written about the Lawns many times on this blog, it would be true to say it is probably my favourite place in Swindon. It is in fact the site of an early prehistoric settlement in the Swindon area and the remains of Holy Rood church are very likely built on the site of an ancient burial ground.
