Two places mentioned in the other entries - Farmington and Hampnett - are both in Gloucestershire. The year at the top of the scan I think is 1782 and the date above the entry for Thomas and Elizabeth looks like 15th October. Unfortunately I can't determine the parish name.

There are also two mentions here of the parish of North Leach.

I think it's possible that our missing parish is North Leach.  It does appear to end -each and the beginning is consistent with the other examples of N.

My reservation is that it seems like a shallow fold to be hiding such a distance of text.

The first missing word is:  ye = the

Also, her surname is Arkill.

ADDED:

Regarding the shallow fold, it may be that with the edge of the page approaching he shortened it to Nth Leach or N. Leach.

I agree.
Well done!
