Eynsham Parish Council



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.
