The Church of St Giles
There is no War Memorial and perhaps this hamlet qualifies as one of the “Blessed Villages”.
In the early twentieth century, there were just 6 houses, the Manor House and the Paper Mill had both been destroyed by fire.
This parish is now a member of the Church of England Benefice of Akeman, which includes the parishes of Bletchingdon, Hampton Gay, Kirtlington, Middleton
Stoney, Wendlebury and Weston-on-the-Green.
Regular services are held despite the absence of electricity. You can drive there but it is only about 10 minutes’ walk across lovely pasture. Strangely it is a very short distance from The Church of the Holy Cross, Shipton on Cherwell but the Oxford Canal and the river Cherwell separate the two places and there is no bridge
