Work in Progress

Work is now well advanced on a volume covering the west Oxfordshire market town of Chipping Norton and half a dozen neighbouring places. Draft histories of the rural parishes are being added below, and work on the town itself is now under way. Subject to continued funding,  we aim to complete the volume in 2023 for publication late in 2024, leaving just two further volumes needed to complete the VCH Oxfordshire series.

Places to be covered (available drafts are highlighted in bold) are: Chipping Norton borough (currently some drafts only) - Hook Norton - Over Norton - Great Rollright - Little Rollright - Salford - Swerford and Showell

Please submit any corrections or comments to the County Editor via email to Simon Townley.
