Notes:

The following information comes from the Chipping Norton website.

Kingham is a Cotswolds village some 5 miles to the South East of Chipping Norton. In addition to boasting the nearest railway station there are also a number of amenities in the form of a post office, shop, school and pub. There are also several organisations such as 'over 60s' and 'toddlers' clubs.

The church of St. Andrew is at least 250 years old, having been reroofed in 1774 for the sum £157.8s.7d. An unusual feature of the church is its stone pillars.
