- Monday 15th June. An evening walk with the Bishop of Ramsbury. Bishop Ed and the Archdeacons are to visit the benefice on Monday 15th June. They will start with evensong in Ogbourne St George at 5.30pm, and then walk 4 or 5 miles, returning to have a meal in The Inn with the Well. Those who wish would then go back to the church for compline. The bishop and archdeacons would very much like to welcome you to Evensong, Walk, Meal and Compline, or any combination. The walk would not be strenuous but would be at a moderate pace. Please let me know if you plan to come so that the Ramsbury Office can order the pub meal.
