Remembrance Sunday, 10th November

The Parish Council, in partnership with the Parochial Church Council, are holding a village commemoration for Remembrance Sunday as we remember the dead of both world wars and all those who have died as a result of war.

As we have no war memorial, a temporary memorial will be set up on the triangle of land opposite the church on Main Street. In collaboration with the church the two minutes silence will be kept at 11am on Sunday 10th November, a wreath will be laid by children from the village and there will be a short ceremony outside prior to the service in Church. 

All are warmly invited to attend. (It would be very much appreciated if traffic could be kept to a minimum between 10.50 and 11.15)

Cokethorpe School bus route

Cokethorpe is an independent, co-educational school for four to eighteen-year-olds, providing a liberal education amidst 150 acres of beautiful parkland, ten miles to the west of Oxford.

We have an extensive bus network which now includes pick-ups from the villages of Great Tew, Little Tew and Duns Tew.

If you would like to arrange a visit or to find out more, please contact admissions@cokethorpe.org or call 01993 703921.

Conservation Area Appraisal

Conservation area status is awarded to places that are deemed to be of ‘special architectural or historic interest’.  The intention of designating a conservation area is not to prevent change or development but to positively manage change in order to protect or enhance the special character and appearance of an area.

The draft conservation area appraisal and management plan is the first review and appraisal of the Duns Tew Conservation area, which was first designated in December 2005
