On the side of a hill above the River Cole at Coleshill Bridge is the small picturesque village of Coleshill, which is home to the National Trust's administrative centre for the Trust's Buscot and Coleshill Estates.

The 250 years old Coleshill Mill at the southern end of the village is a well-preserved example of a small water-powered corn mill with an adjoining mill house. There is evidence that a water mill might have been used here at least as far back as the 11th century as there is mention of a mill in the Doomsday Survey. The Mill finally ceased operating in the 1920s and is now open to the public once a month during the summer months.

All Saints' Church is the parish church and has origins in the late 12th century, with further building carried out in the 13th century. The tower was added in the 15th century and has some interesting gargoyles. For the history and full information about All Saints' Church click here.

Coleshill is midway between Faringdon and Highworth along the B4019.
