Warborough and Shillingford 

The village green is focal point of the highly sought after parish of Warborough which consists of the two villages of Warborough and Shillingford. Used throughout the year for football and cricket, the village green is also home to the annual Warborough and Shillingford Festival, three days of entertainment for all the family that also raises money for local good causes. The green is also used for car boot sales during the summer months and has appeared on television several times in the popular detective series, Midsomer Murders.                                                                                

Situated just nine miles from Oxford and less than two miles from the market town of Wallingford, Warborough and Shillingford are popular villages with both families and commuters. Warborough Primary School was rated good in its latest Ofsted report (May 2013) and there is also a pre-school. Local amenities include a village store and post office, two village halls, two public houses - one in Warborough and one in Shillingford. The Shillingford Bridge Hotel is located on a beautiful stretch of the River Thames and has an outdoor swimming pool which is open to members of the public.
