About this area.
Situated in picturesque, Oxfordshire countryside Chalgrove has a wonderful community feel to it.

The village church has an internationally renowned set of medieval wall paintings in the chancel dating from 1320. Furthermore Chalgrove is the site of a small Civil War battle in 1643, the Battle of Chalgrove Field. The Parliamentarian John Hampden was wounded in the battle, and died of his wounds six days later. A very rare silver Roman coin ( circa 271) was found at Chalgrove: a base silver Roman coin called a radiate of Emperor Domitian II.
