Welcome to Epwell’s Village website

Our village lies on the ironstone downs of North Oxfordshire, about seven miles to the west of Banbury, close to the county boundary with South Warwickshire and to the northern reach of the Cotswold escarpment.

The website holds lots of useful information about village events, organisations, services and Epwell’s fascinating history.  

News items and events coming soon will be mentioned on this page.  To suggest items contact editor@epwell.com

A new Rector for the six parishes in our benefice has been appointed 

Subject to legalities, Emily Robottom-Scott will be joining as our new Rector in about 3 months time (the licensing date has not yet been finalised).  Emily writes:

 It is a great privilege, and I am very excited, to be called to join you all in the Wykeham Benefice. Currently I am serving my curacy at St Peter’s Church in Sutton Coldfield, but I have deep love of the countryside, a passion for rural ministry and a background working with horses. I will be moving with my lively 8 month old Sprocker puppy, Sable and my Siamese cat, Scrannit. You are all held firmly in my prayers as I prepare to move and I look forward to meeting and carrying out God’s work with you all.
