More Taynton thatched cottages basking in the late afternoon sun

Taynton was renowned for its stone quarries, and Taynton limestone was used in many important buildings throughout the Thames Valley. The stone was quarried in in the locality since at least the 14th century, and was used for many of the older colleges of Oxford University, Windsor Castle, the original pre- 1666 St Paul's Cathedral, and Blenheim Palace.
