Chipping Norton Attractions

Attractions in Chipping Norton and the Chipping Norton area of the Cotswolds

 
Chipping Norton Museum  

Chipping Norton Museum

The Museum is located in the Chipping Norton Co-operative Society Hall dating from the 1880s. The exhibits are mainly hands-on and illustrate the town's development from Saxon Manor to a prosperous wool town plus a section depicting the town in World War II.

Representing the recreational side of the town and district is a fairly unique display of the major summer sport played locally, American Baseball, which was played from 1908 to the 1970s, for many of those years at national level.

Rollright Stones

An impressive late Neolithic stone circle in a secluded and unspoilt location owned and run by a trust. Remains of a burial chamber “whispering knights” and the solitary “King’s stone” are close by. Try counting the number of stones in the circle – it is said the total changes each time.
