  • Harris's Corner
    Photo: Donald Richards 01/05/2013

    A regular meeting point for local residents - at least since the Harris family ran the butchers on the corner. The plaque was installed in their honour by Mervyn Harris - read more >>

  • Church Street

    Another sketch by the prolific Donald Richards, undated.

  • Swinford Toll Bridge

    Eynsham artists go to town with Artweeks towards the end of May but draw inspiration from the village all year round.

    Variations on a local theme include this iconic design © Alice Walker, originally reproduced on mugs and latte glasses but recently extended to aprons and notelets by Eynsham Enterprises.

    Photo: Jane Tomlinson 01/08/2009

    Jane says: "This hand-made drypoint tinted with watercolour is inspired by the beauty to be found in the west Oxfordshire village of Eynsham."
