Priory Manor can be found in the north west of Cherwell, with rolling hills made of ironstone. This beautiful golden-brown colour stone is used in building the houses and cottages within the area. The hills are part of the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With a wetland moor in the south of Cherwell known as the Vale of Otmoor, this extensive grassland is encircled by the “Seven Towns” of Otmoor. A large part of Otmoor has been made an RSPB nature reserve, with large areas of land being returned to marshland since 1997. Sourced in Northamptonshire, The River Cherwell is the main river within the Cherwell district and it has three small tributaries, rivers Sor, Swere and Ray. The River Cherwell joins the Thames in Oxford. Within the village, a parish church, the Turner Arms public house, a post office, a village hall (formerly the school) and the Five Acres Primary School can be found. Ambrosden also offers a hair salon, a car dealer and garage and a local craft shop. The Church of St. Mary the Virgin is the parish church and whilst the church has been refurbished several times, the door dates from Norman times. The west tower is Early English Gothic and the remainder of the church was rebuilt in the 14th century in a decorated Gothic style. Since the Second World War, Ambrosden has been home to army personnel stationed at St. George’s Barracks. Like many other villages, Ambrosden’s history can be traced back to Saxon times. Historians believe the name derived from the Old English for ‘Ambre’s Hill’ although some believe that Ambrosden was named after a Roman military leader.
