Neolithic Henge Site Unearthed in Adderbury

In 1995 Adderbury celebrated what it believed to be its 1,000 year anniversary, however, 6 months’ ago that assumed history changed due the results of a geophysical survey of the Milton Road North housing development land. The survey discovered enough evidence to suggest that Adderbury was a substantial settlement in 3,000 BC to 2,000 BC, a period that covers the Neolithic Age to the dawn of the early Bronze Age.

District and County Council Reorganisation – Message from Cherwell District Council

Ongoing discussions about the role of the local and county council have developed this week. Adderbury Parish Council has asked we publish the following statement from Barry Wood Leader of Cherwell District Council:

‘Oxfordshire County Council has announced a proposal to create a single unitary authority for Oxfordshire in place of the current district/county council structure.

The proposal was originally opposed by all of Oxfordshire’s city and district councils, including Cherwell. However on Monday South Oxfordshire District Council and the Vale of White Horse District Council announced they are now in support of the county council’s proposal for a single unitary authority and will be working with them to develop a submission to Government.

Housing Development on North Milton Road – Where’s the Hornton Stone??

The appearance of this development is extremely sensitive as the gateway to Adderbury immediately before the conservation area.

Disappointingly, as you can now see, these houses are being built in a rather bright red brick – possibly similar to those as you approach Bloxham? – when most villagers expected Hornton stone on the outward facing properties and brick out of view as you approach the village – such as has been successfully achieved in the Adderbury Fields and Aynho Road developments.
