History

Detailed History

Southrop Lodge was formerly the Rectory and is believed to date from the late Georgian period. It was once the home of John Keble, the cleric and poet who for eight years was in charge of the parishes of Eastleach Turville and Eastleach Martin. Whilst living here, John Keble organised vacation reading parties from Oxford, from which discussions between participants sowed the first seeds of the Oxford Movement.
