Chadlington has a population of approximately 900 and is located in Evenlode Valley, four miles south west of Chipping Norton.

The church was first mentioned in the Eynsham Abbey rolls of 1197, which contain a reference to the "chapels of Chadlington and Shorthampton". A round arch in the north wall of the nave is Saxon and pointed arches in the naves are in the early English style (1190 - 1275). The rounded arch of the south door and some of the windows in the south aisle are of the traditional style (1150 - 1190).

The following information comes from F. Sharpe The Church Bells of Oxfordshire. He last visited the tower in 1948.
