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

Selected images from the Parish

On the edge of the Cotswolds is the Parish of Deddington, Clifton and Hempton. Accessible from the M40, it's an ideal launch pad for some of England's prettiest villages, grandest country houses and greatest seats of learning. Oxford, Stratford and Blenheim are within easy reach, as are Bicester Village and Silverstone racetrack. With its picturesque honey-coloured houses, history dating from Saxon times, plenty of social activity, a thriving business community and a variety of places to stay, the Parish is a great place to live, work or just visit.

What's new on DoL?

The Curious Case of the Deddington Jugs. Hilary Smith recounts the curious story behind some old earthenware jugs discovered by Ron & Daphne Canning in 1947 in the rubble of the collapsed roof of their house (formerly The Exhibition Inn and the Three Horseshoes before that) on Horsefair. Her research led her to the Ashmolean Museum and a pottery in Wales.
