Ardington (The Holy Trinity)

ARDINGTON (The Holy Trinity), a parish, in the union and hundred of Wantage, county of Berks, 2¾ miles (E.) from Wantage; containing 405 inhabitants. It comprises by computation 2190 acres, and is intersected by the Wilts and Berks canal. The surface is flat, except at the northern extremity, which contains a portion of the chalk hills extending through this county and Wiltshire. The northern part has some good meadow lands, and the middle is a rich loam well adapted for corn. The living is a discharged vicarage, valued in the king's books at £8. 7. 9., and in the patronage of the Dean and Canons of Christ-Church, Oxford: the church has a narrow south aisle divided from the nave by pointed arches, and at the east end a small transept. The Roman Ikeneld-street passed through the parish.
