  • Public transport
  • That was then ...

    Oxfordshire, but not as we know it: this 17th century map by John Speed provides a fascinating snapshot of an age when the ‘Roll-rich Stones’ were thought to stand mid-way between ‘Longhanboro’ and ‘Enesham’. Look for it on the cover of the Eynsham Directory 2014 - more >>

  • Waste Bins

    Following a series of features on dog fouling, residents may find it helpful to know where the nearest bins are. As you will see, they are never far away. Green dots mark the litter bins and blue dots mark the dog waste bins. Please let us know if any are incorrectly marked.

  • Eynsham distilled

    Eynsham artist Jane Tomlinson has created a hand-drawn map of the village, featuring houses, activities, business and buildings as well as history and nature. A great gift for anyone who loves Eynsham - more >>

  • Wharf Stream Way

    Start Tour >>; View .pdf >>; More local maps >>

    An imaginative plan for public art in Eynsham, leveraging funds from developers to enhance our local rights of way. The chosen trail (2 km / 1.25 miles) is to the east of the village, running beside the allotments, over the dismantled railway to the Wharf Stream bridge and on to the Thames. This map was also published in issue 12 of Eynsham News. Full text follows below.

    A fascinating route with a rich history, which, apart from the Wharf Stream crossing, is largely invisible. Unique artworks, designed by local residents, have been used to bring the history of the route to life. Why not come and see for yourself ...

    ACCESS: There is no parking in the immediate area of the start of the Wharf Stream Way at Hazeldene Close. Please make use of car parks in the village centre from where it is a short walk to the start point at Hazeldene Close. There is a mobility gate at the start and no stiles along the route. It is flat but does tend to be uneven and can be muddy. The bridge at Wharf Stream crossing has a step. For more information call 01993 861080.

    • START at the edge of Hazeldene Close, by Jane Tomlinson’s interpretation panel (A). Carefully cross the main road (B4449).
    • Follow the footpath alongside the allotments, past the waymarker designed by Eynsham Day Centre and Alice Walker(B).
    • Turn left and follow Mead Lane for approx. 200 metres.
    • Turn right, through the field entrance and follow the path beside the hedgerow.
    • Cross the old railway line. Follow the path for 200 metres and pass through the break in the hedge. Keep walking straight towards Wytham hill in the distance.
    • Cross the Wharf Stream via the footbridge. From April the information panel, designed by Lorna Marrison (C), will give some historical context of the area.
    • Follow the footpath across the field towards the Thames Weir.Turn right and follow the river for 100 metres. (For a longer walk, you may wish to cross the Thames here and pick up another local footpath.)
    • Cross the Wharf Stream again and bear right. Following the footpath, walk diagonally across the field towards a gate.
    • On the main road (B4044) you will see the waymarker designed by Jane Tomlinson (D). Turn right here and follow the pavement to the Talbot pub and your return to Eynsham.
