I think this confirms it's Bampton:

Imber

That's the Bampton in Devon, which also has a horse fair.  This is info about the Oxfordshire Bampton http://www.bamptonoxon.co.uk/history-of-bampton.asp Trying to type this on kindle, so apologies for typing errors!

This is a lovely photo. I can find dozens of pictures with Bampton horse fair and dozens of pictures of the church, but this is the only one I have seen of the horse fair outside the church.

Thanks for all the feedback.  I should have added more detail about the card.

It was dated November 14, 1912 and mailed from Shakespeare, Ontario Canada.  Postmarked  November 15, 1912.   Addressed to a great uncle in Mazenod, Saskatchewan advising him that his father was near death.  His father passed November 16, 1912.

Mystery is why a postcard of an English church was used.

Again many thanks.

Bampton, Devon makes perfect sense as family was in Devon before coming to Canada

Except that your photo is of Bampton, Oxfordshire. (As are the ones youngtug has just linked to.)
