Churchill, www.churchillsarsden.com & www.thecotswoldgateway.co.uk/churchill.htm, which was mentioned in the Domesday Book, is also famous as the birthplace in 1732 of Warren Hastings, the first Governor General of India and in 1787 of William Smith, known as “The Father of Geology”. The church of All Saints dominates the landscape and can be seen from miles around. The nearest town, Chipping Norton, is a traditional market town with a good selection of restaurants, pubs, and shops. The Station Mill Antiques Centre on Station Road, Chipping Norton is well worth a visit.


The countryside around Churchill provides four Circular Walks with wonderful views ranging from a short stroll round the village taking in the Heritage Centre and the very impressive All Saints Church, to a 4.5 mile walk to Sarsden and beyond.
