Visit Wheatley and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Wheatley in Oxfordshire, a village six miles from Oxford on the river Thame, had settlements here in Roman and Saxon times.
Historical bullet points:
- The manor house was enlarged in 1601.
- The Old Road which crossed Shotover Plain was a favourite haunt of highwaymen.
- Stone was quarried here for building Windsor Castle.
- The lock-up, constructed in 1834, was used to imprison drunks overnight before sending them to court in Oxford.
In 1862 the railway linked the village to Oxford, High Wycombe and London but the building of new roads forced its closure.
Buses now run to Aylesbury, Thame and Oxford.
Wheatley has thrived and grown, the population now standing around 4,000. As a result most of the amenities of modern life exist: a bank, a post office, shops and schools.
