WROXTON is a charming North Oxfordshire village with a Green and Duckpond situated about 3 miles North West of Banbury and it comprises a number of most attractive period cottages and houses. Local amenities include a highly acclaimed primary school, with the option also of nearby primary schools in Shenington and North Newington. There is a public house, the highly renowned Wroxton hotel and restaurant and churches of differing denominations. The village benefits from pedestrian access to the grounds of Wroxton Abbey.
Wroxton Abbey was a Jacobean house with a 1727 garden which was partly converted to the serpentine style between 1731 and 1751. There is a serpentine lake, a cascade, a rill and a number of follies, and a Gothic Dovecot. A wonderful asset to the village of Wroxton, is the public access to the grounds where pedestrians are allowed to walk.
