Thame is a traditional market town located in the county of Oxfordshire, named after the river Thame that runs through the north of the town. Situated at the foot of the Chiltern Hills, is enriched with many markets, beautiful nature spots, shopping locations and award-winning pubs.

History of Thame

The history of Thame spans around 6,000 years, dating back to the Anglo-Saxon period. The extent of this history was only discovered in 2015 when a full-scale excavation took place, revealing Thame’s rich pre-historic past. Evidence from the Neolithic, Iron Age, Roman period and early Anglo-Saxon period was recorded by the archaeologists.

Thame was recorded in the Domesday book, however, at the time it was listed as belonging to the Bishop of Lincoln. During the 12th century, the Bishop of Lincoln formed a new town where Thame is located and this resulted in the creation of the famous wide High Street that still exists today. The land was originally utilised for farming purposes but was repurposed to house the 12th century markets. Thame is still to this day famous for its weekly markets and famed for the surviving medieval layout of the town.

In the 19th century Thame began to grow, with the construction of East Street and many houses being built to accommodate the influx of agricultural workers relocating to the town. Many Victorian buildings were created during this period, including the Town Hall and a County Court, which is now Thame Museum. A railway line was also implemented at this time, however it did not serve the old town but instead provided access to the ever expanding east side of the settlement.

The 20th century marked further changes and expansion in Thame, with the town’s famous livestock market moving to North Street after 800 years of being in the High Street. During the 1960s, Thame’s railway station was eventually closed as the line was no longer operational. This railway station served the town for over 100 years. Thame is now served by Haddenham and Thame Parkway station.

A few years later in the 70s, the Lea Park housing estate was built to the north of the town. This was just one of many 20th century housing estates that encouraged the continual growth of the town’s population. Some 20 years later, the M40 motorway was extended from Thame to Birmingham, making the area even more desirable for potential inhabitants.
