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.
