a Picturesque Village in the county of Oxfordshire

About Duns Tew

Duns Tew is a picturesque village in North Oxfordshire, about 10 miles south of Banbury. It is one of three local villages collectively known as "The Tews", the other two being Little Tew, and Great Tew. The name is Anglo Saxon in origin, where a 'Tew' or 'Tiewe' describes a ridge of land.

The village is mentioned in the Doomsday book of 1086, and a copy of the entry can be found in the local parish church of St Mary Magdalene, parts of which have survived from the 12th century.

The center of Duns Tew is designated as an area of special architectural and historic interest to be preserved and enhanced.

The pub in the village ' The White Horse' dates to the 17th century, as do parts of Duns Tew Manor House.
