Welcome to Leafield
Right on the edge of the Cotswolds, Leafield is only 18 miles north-west of Oxford, and five miles from Chalbury railway station. With 330 households, and a total population of just over 800, Leafield is both remote, up on the windy highground between Witney and Charlbury; and connected, with easy access to both Oxford and London.
Until the 1850′s Leafield was surrounded by the ancient royal forest of Wychwood. The village centres on the Green, with the picturesque school in the middle. The tall spire of St Michael and All Angels’ Church, designed in 1859 by Sir George Gilbert Scott, is a distinctive feature on the horizon for many miles around.
Leafield Parish Council has written to to Oxfordshire County Council to express the concern and dismay of Leafield residents at the threat of deep, significant and destructive cuts to our local bus services. »
Leafield Parish Council regrets to inform its residents that a chestnut tree currently on The Green may need to be removed. There will be a special public meeting of the Parish Council on Wednesday 24th June 8pm at the Village Hall to discuss this issue and explain why we may need to make the difficult decision to remove this tree. »
