Welcome to Horspath Village

St Giles Church Horspath

Latest NEWS !

It is with regret that Horspath’s Annual Fair has been cancelled this year due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. After careful consideration, Councillors made the decision to cancel the Fair based on advice given by Oxfordshire Public Health, Thames Valley Police and also the recent increase of positive cases in Oxford.

This decision was made purely in the interest of public safety for the residents of Horspath village.
We look forward to seeing the Fair return to the village in 2021.
