About Kirtlington

Kirtlington is an attractive village in Oxfordshire, 6.5 miles west of Bicester.

The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle records that in AD 977 King Edward the Martyr held a witenagemot at 'Kyrtlingtun' attended by Dunstan, Archbishop of Canterbury.

The village has an annual festival known as the Lamb Ale. It became an established tradition by 1679, starting the day after Trinity Sunday and lasting for two days.
