Churchill, Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire, OX7 6NE


A small village with many interesting buildings. The church of All Saints (1827) has features modelled on three Oxford colleges. There is a Gothic fountain on the village green described by Pevsner as ‘hideously ugly with water dripping from a rude spout’.

The Heritage Centre (open weekend afternoons April-September and by appointment) is housed in the Old Church, site of the former village. The Centre which celebrates, amongst other people, Warren Hastings and William Smith, has changing exhibitions and much local information. There is a memorial to William Smith ‘father of geology’ opposite the village hall, formerly the village reading room.
