Chipping Norton in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds

Welcome to the Chipping Norton web site which contains details on Chipping Norton accommodation (Chipping Norton hotel and bed and breakfast information), attractions in the Chipping Norton area and other information on this Cotswold town.

The bustling town of Chipping Norton lies eleven miles north of Burford in one of the least explored and most scenic corners of the Cotswolds.

Bliss Mill, Chipping Norton  

The western approach to Chipping Norton is dominated by the extraordinary Bliss Mill (pictured).

Bliss Tweed Mill is one of the crop of monuments dating from the boom of the textile trade.

     

Wealthy wool merchants also paid for St Mary's Parish Church which can be found in Church Street. One of the most impressive churches in the Cotswolds, it houses some well-preserved brasses and tombs.

There is no mention of a church in the town called 'Nortone' in the Domesday Survey and it is thought to have been originally founded in the 12th century and dedicated to St. Nicholas, the present dedication to St. Mary probably took place in the 13th century.

  St Mary's Church in Chipping Norton

Signs of a 12th century arch are revealed on the internal wall of the tower at the west end of the Nave. An indication of the earliest church which probably only consisted of a nave and small chancel. This would have been extended in the 13th century, with aisles being added in the early 14th century.

The Cotswolds in an area of outstanding natural beauty of England and is much visited by tourists from home and abroad. Its Cotswold stone buildings, low density of population and history make it a place that you will want to visit again and again.
