Description

Church Lane, Cropredy

Cropredy is a large village on both the River Cherwell and the Oxford Canal. The former Great Western Railway line, now part of the Chiltern Line, passes the village and at one time Cropredy had a railway station but this was closed in 1956. The name of the village is derived from the Old English words cropp, meaning a hill, and ridig, meaning a stream. The older parts of the village, especially near the parish church, are built in the local golden ironstone and there are some historic thatched ironstone cottages.
