Welcome to the Parish of Deddington, Oxfordshire
Three villages in one parish

On the edge of the Cotswolds is the Parish of Deddington, Clifton and Hempton. Easily accessible from the M40, it's ideal for a cultural visit, shopping or sports - Oxford, Stratford, Blenheim Palace, Bicester Village and Silverstone are all within easy reach. With its picturesque honey-coloured houses, history dating from Saxon times, plenty of social activity, a thriving business community and places to stay, it’s a great place to live, work or visit.

Those Roadworks ...

The roadworks around the traffic lights and northwards towards the new housing development are causing the parish considerable grief. The flyer that came round said the work would take seven weeks, the road signs say three months.

The work includes: a new bellmouth access into the site from Banbury Road; extension of the 30mph zone to the northern boundary of the site; a new Toucan crossing south of the Leyes; a new footway/cycleway from the site to the new crossing (this may become the shortest cycle path ever built); widening of the footway on the eastern side of the road from the new crossing to Earl’s Lane; a new right-hand turning lane from the Banbury Road into the site (including widening of the A4260 at this point); and the laying of a foul water sewer (6” pipe) from the manhole by the library to the pedestrian site entrance (see plan).

The word is that the work is already behind, so we can look forward to several more weeks of hold-ups and delays…
