Brief Description

Towards the southern corner of the village is a field which is held in trust by the Oxford Preservation Trust. It is intended to be kept as an area of peace and natural beauty. The field has wildflowers, a stream and woodland on the boundaries.


Six men of the village lost their lives in World War 2. Sarah Kirk, the mother of one of those killed, began fundraising for a memorial site and purchased the field jointly with the Oxford Preservation Trust.
