Witney is the largest town in West Oxfordshire and enjoys a scenic location on the banks of the River Windrush. It’s often recognised as one of the best places to live in Britain, which isn’t surprising given the local amenities and historic character.

Witney Town Centre 

The town owes much of its development to a prosperous wool trade. Blankets and gloves were manufactured here and exported globally as far back as the Middle Ages. While that industry has since declined, Witney manages to preserve the rich legacy. The picturesque high street is crammed with 18th century architecture. Some of the highlights include the Town Hall, Blanket Hall and the Victorian Corn Exchange.

farmers market

While many visitors come to marvel at these historic treasures, the independent shops arguably hold more appeal to residents. A twice-weekly farmers’ market is another major attraction, and all the leading retailers can be found at the two shopping centres: Marriotts Walk and The Woolgate Centre. Coupled with the fashionable eateries, local cinema and leisure centre, Witney promises a vibrant day out.

Just a short walk from the bustling centre, the Witney Lake Country Park unfolds. This 30-hectare expanse is a wildlife haven and the perfect setting for a summer picnic. Other nearby villages offer similar appeal, with picturesque cottages overlooking rolling Cotswold countryside. Minster Lovell remains the most sought-after and is home to the impressive ruins of a manor house. These romantic locations add to the sense of exclusivity and give a wide array of property choice for those relocating to the Witney area.

Transportation in Witney 

Although Witney is no longer home to a railway station, residents have the convenience of nearby services from Combe, Hanborough or Finstock. All of these sit on the Cotswold line, connecting to Oxford in the south and many of the picturesque villages to the north.

Alternatively, for main line services across the UK, Oxford station can be reached in 22 minutes via the A40. From here, half-hourly trains depart to London, while frequent services connect to Manchester and Newcastle via Birmingham New Street.

Given the town’s proximity to the A40, those commuting by car enjoy similar convenience. This major transport link passes through Oxford before finishing at the M40. As such, London is easily reached in the south, as well as Birmingham and other cities in the north.

Attractions in Witney

Given Witney’s historical involvement in the wool trade, it’s no surprise that you’ll find plenty of historical landmarks linked to the industry. 

The Witney and District Museum is a quaint little building with exhibits split over two floors. The first floor hosts the Bartlett Taylor Gallery, home to temporary exhibitions, the most recent being ‘350 Years of the Blanket Industry’. The ground floor holds the permanent collection, highlighting the evolution of Witney over the past thousand years, from blankets and gloves to the brewing industry; Witney is home to the Wychwood Brewery, after all. 

The Witney Blanket Hall was the heart of Witney’s blanket trade, where every blanket woven in the town was brought to be weighed and measured. These days, it promises “woollen blankets & throws, coffee, pies, beer, and assemblies”; a combination of local history, woollen retail, an incredible pie shop and a venue for hire. 

Cogges Manor Farm is a farm like no other. Children will love seeing and interacting with the animals, as well as seeing the working farm in action. The historic Manor House and farm buildings are open to visitors, telling the history of farming as well as giving you an opportunity to step into Downton Abbey itself; the farm served as a filming location for the series’ Yew Tree Farm.

History of Witney

Witney is a town steeped in history. The earliest records suggest a settlement thrived here in AD 969, and Roman ruins have been uncovered in the area. Although little is known of this time, the Domesday survey of 1066 gave an insight into the agricultural-based economy of Witney during the Middle Ages.

It began with two mills for grinding corn and would later develop into the prosperous wool industry that put Witney on the map. In the early 1800s, the town had five working mills that produced world-renowned blankets and gloves. These were once exported as far as America, often exchanged for furs and other native produce.

This roaring trade would slowly decline with the onset of the 20th century. Early’s factory was one of the leading manufacturers, and the last blanket maker to close in 2002. Thankfully, this rich heritage is kept alive at the Cogges Manor Farm museum, where visitors can learn more about the influential woollen trade.
