Town or village? Although it could easily be a small town with its High Street, "town" square, shops, narrow streets lined with old houses and its modern residential areas and schools, Eynsham is in fact a large village. Which is fortunate because it means I am able to include pictures of Eynsham on this website! It is a bustling village with a pleasant centre and grey stone cottages and other buildings. The parish church is to one side of The Square which, together with High Street, is on the southern side of the village.
