Welcome to the Chadlington Village Website

Chadlington is a popular village in West Oxfordshire nestling on the northern slopes of the Evenlode Valley between Chipping Norton to the north and the Wychwood Forest / Charlbury to the south.


July in Chadlington

Everyone is hoping to see friends and family again. The beauty of our countryside in summer reminds us that there is much to enjoy in the natural world. Also, some local activities may begin again soon and we may see some events being organised, as long as there continues to be a decline in the transmission of Corona virus. We will endeavour to report this changing picture on our village website.

The official guidance on how you can help to ensure we do not return to high levels of infection across the country is changing again this month.


But the main message remains – keep your distance and take care for your own sake, and for others. The ‘lockdown’ has not ended; it has been eased. In particular, please try to maintain a safe distance, for example when using the seating on The Stocks, opposite Café de la Post; when passing others in the street and at the entrances to shops or on footpaths.

In Chadlington, the playground is now open with signs at the gates informing users how they can keep themselves and their children safe while using the facility. The Church is open for individual prayer on a Sunday but cannot yet hold services (see here for more information). Our village pub, the Tite Inn, will be serving drinks in their beer garden and offering a take-away food menu from 10th July. Please contact them for opening hours and any other information about how they are making their pub safe for all customers and staff.

Our shops are operating as they have done throughout the health crisis, encouraging social distancing but enabling customers to purchase  groceries from Chadlington Quality Foods, meat from Slatters and take-away refreshments and provisions from Café de la Post. Please continue to shop local.

You can play your part in keeping the environment in our village pleasant for all by disposing of your waste thoughtfully – please do not light bonfires, dispose of household rubbish in the public litter bins and clear up after your dogs. Thank you.

We wish all our website visitors well and hope that we will, in time, be able to return to everyday village life.
