An historic market town situated 12 miles west of Oxford and famous for its woollen blankets produced with water drawn from the River Windrush, Witney is now the largest town in West Oxfordshire. The town centre has a thriving atmosphere, offering a good selection of shops and facilities one would expect to find in a town of its size, as well as a twice weekly market. The main high street runs from the Butter Cross and features the 18th Century Town Hall, the Blanket Hall and the Victorian Corn Exchange. A number of Ofsted “Good” and “Outstanding” primary and secondary schools are located in the area, whilst country pubs are in abundance in and around Witney itself.
