  Travel Details: OS Grid Ref: SU464915
The church is reached by turning west from the cross roads just by the village hall and green; take the southernmost of the 2 roads going west from the war memorial. This road goes beside the 'Causeway' a raised bank beside the road until a level crossing is reached; there are gates and warning bells since this is the main line Didcot to Bristol where some trains run at 125m.p.h. The church is just beyond the level crossing. Park in the road outside.
  Public Transport: Stagecoach buses between Didcot and Wantage stop in Steventon but not very near to the church.
  Eating Places: the nearest pub is The North Star just the other side of the level crossing from the church. The Fox and The Cherry Tree are others on the main road, B4017.
