Carterton Town Oxfordshire

About Carterton

Welcome to the Carterton edition of The Oxford Magazine.

Carterton is the second largest town in West Oxfordshire and is situated two miles south of the A40 to the south-west of Witney. The town lies on the edge of the Thames Valley and is close to the Cotswold area of outstanding natural beauty.

Carterton’s population has more than trebled in size during the last 30 years, to a present total of about 16,000. Much of this high development rate has been due to the presence of the adjoining RAF Brize Norton Air Base.

Carterton is proud of its close and friendly relationship with the Royal Air Force; RAF Brize Norton is Britain’s largest air base and the largest employer in the area.
