The local area guide to living in Chipping Norton

The market town and civil parish of Chipping Norton lies between Oxford and Banbury as a gateway to the beautiful Cotswolds, one of England’s most cherished Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Locals affectionately refer to the iconic town as ‘Chippy’, and the town’s classic architecture includes picturesque rows of 17th-century alms houses, medieval buildings, typical Cotswolds stone public buildings and the historic St Mary the Virgin Church. These charming architectural features come from Chipping Norton’s past as a prosperous trading post for wool and tweed, when it was one of the wealthiest places in all of England.

The town began as a small settlement built at the foot of Chipping Norton Castle, a Norman timber structure of which only the bare foundations remain. Chipping Norton then expanded outwards from the Market Square in the Middle Ages as its economic significance grew. Many of the town’s medieval structures built at the peak of its success still survive, though many of the marketplace houses were re-faced in the Georgian style in the 18th century.

Chipping Norton serves as a rural hub for around 40 surrounding villages and is growing in popularity for London commuters. Some of these include politicians and media professionals, for whom the town serves as an ideal retreat from the city or as a second home for weekends. Several industrial estates in the town are home to a number of tech, professional and financial service firms.
