Eynsham Parish Council

About

PARISH AND VILLAGE

Eynsham is the 4th largest settlement in West Oxfordshire, at an important crossing of the river Thames, midway between Oxford and Witney and within a stone's throw of the A40. Its recorded history goes back to Saxon times; Eynsham Abbey (sadly no more) was founded in 1005; and 92 listed buildings survive around the parish. Today the village caters for body, mind and spirit with 30 food & drink outlets (including 8 pubs); 7 education facilities; 3 churches and a range of alternative health practices.

This is the Parish Council's latest contribution to open government in Eynsham and Barnard Gate.

  • If you live or work in the area, it also offers a guide to business, shops and services; updates on local issues and interests; and a diary reflecting the activities of over 100 clubs, associations & support groups.
  • If you're moving in, there's a comprehensive 'welcome pack'.
  • If you're looking around, there are historical items, images, reflections and tours for every taste; and links to other significant sources on every page.

CREDITS: Thanks to the people of Eynsham and beyond for support and feedback since 2006. A special mention to:

  • Alice Walker for the image on our banner heading;
  • local photographers whose work is acknowledged in appropriate places;
  • our many other contributors for their vision and generosity; and
  • Renwick Data Systems for ingenuity, patience and good humour with a demanding project.
