Latest Oxfordshire parish online
3 July, 2014 (All day)
The latest parish earmarked for VCH Oxfordshire's forthcoming Ewelme Hundred volume (VCH Oxfordshire XVIII) is now available online. Originating as an important Anglo-Saxon royal estate centre, Benson later became a significant coaching stop on the Oxford-London road, and is now best known for its important RAF Station, which began as a small grass airfield constructed in 1937-9. The new account also includes Benson's rural hamlets of Preston Crowmarsh, Fifield, and Roke.
Twelve other parishes to be included in the volume are already available as work-in-progress. The volume itself will go to press next year and appear in 2016.
