The local area guide to living in Bampton

Bampton (or Bampton-in-the-Bush) is a village in Oxfordshire, in the Thames Valley. Sheltered in a valley as it is, it has been inhabited by humans since at least the Iron Age. It was the site of Roman and later Norman fortifications and, when recorded in the Domesday Book in 1086, was noted for its market, making it an important local town. It was among the three largest settlements in the country at that time.

Right on the edge of the Cotswolds, it is a famously beautiful village and combines cosy, classic English rural beauty with plenty of convenient amenities. The community is also particularly lively - throwing plenty of events throughout the year, each appealing to different people with different interests.

Bampton was famously used as the filming spot for the outdoor scenes in the smash hit drama, 'Downton Abbey'. The Old Grammar School Building in the village was used as Downton's hospital and St Mary's Church was also featured heavily. In fact, St Mary's is a charming example of an old parish church – it dates from the 12th century and retains much of its original beauty.

Information about the local residents

As of the 2011 Census, Bampton has a population of 2,564. Of this, 1,253 are male and 1,311 are female, spread across 1,120 households.

The area has a lot of space, with a population density of 1.5 persons per hectare, much less than the 4.5 figure for the rest of the South East. Nearly 35% of households are owned outright, and a further 35.2% with a mortgage, making property ownership rates a little higher than you'd find elsewhere in England on average.

Education rates are marginally higher than those for the rest of England with only 17.6% of people having no qualifications compared to 22.5% for the country. This is probably a factor in the low unemployment rate of just 2.3%. Approximately 61% of households are classified as belonging to the AB and C1 social grades, noticeably higher than the national average. Bampton has a higher than average number of people working in Higher or Intermediate professional, administrative, technical or managerial roles.

The average age is higher than that of the rest of England by over a year, at 41.1 years old, but general rates of health are impressive, with nearly 85% of people describing their health as good or very good.

Nearby schools

Within the village itself is Bampton Church of England Primary School. A small community school that relies on lots of input from helpful locals, it offers a diverse curriculum and has been rated 'Good' in every category by Ofsted. An impressive 98% of parents say that their child is happy, well looked after and taught well at the school.

Also nearby is Aston & Cote Church of England Primary School. Like Bampton school, it is rated 'Good' across the board and perhaps differs slightly in that it places a larger emphasis on Christian teachings.

For secondary schools, academies and colleges, parents will find plenty within an easy drive without having to go further than Oxford, just 30 minutes away.

Getting around

Bampton has not had a functioning railway station since the 1960s closures. It does have some fairly limited bus services, but the most efficient way to get around is by car.

To the north is the main artery road, the A40, and a drive along this will take you to Oxford in just around half an hour. In the other direction, along the A420, is Swindon. That trip takes around 40 minutes – making Bampton a fairly attractive village for commuters.

Local shops

Bampton has the convenient amenities you'd expect – a convenience store, butchers, chemist and more. It also has a wide range of societies and clubs for those looking to integrate themselves socially.

It also has several pubs which serve good food and offer a warm, friendly and cosy atmosphere.
