About Chipping Norton

Welcome to the Chipping Norton edition of The Oxford Magazine.

Although it’s just a small town, most people in the UK know about Chipping Norton from the “Chipping Norton Set” – a loose association of local movers and shakers including the former Prime Minister David Cameron, the Murdoch Family and the former editor of the Sun newspaper.

Besides this connection Chipping Norton or “Chippy” to the locals, is a very charming market town, well-known for its antique shops, and it’s own theatre which hosts original productions and touring companies. It also lays claim to being the highest town in Oxfordshire.

St Mary the Virgin is a quintessential Cotswold church with the inside flooded with light because of its uninterrupted clerestory windows. In the lush and verdurous countryside outside the town, you’ll find the Rollright Stones, a Neolithic and Bronze Age stone circle.
