This is a growing collection of my photos of Oxfordshire's many and varied villages with a little information about each village and a location map from Bing.
You are welcome to download the images for your personal use. For further information about reuse of images and maps on this website please click here.
Bing maps provide a choice of three views of the area, i.e.
- a road map to show the location of the village,
- an Ordnance Survey map for more detail, or
- a bird's eye or aerial
photomap view for added interest.
The greater detail on the Ordnance Survey maps (e.g. footpaths, woods,
churches, pubs etc.) make them particularly useful for exploring the villages and surrounding area on foot.
All the Bing maps and views can be printed.
Finally, a word of apology:
Unfortunately even the prettiest villages nowadays seem to be cluttered with power and telephone poles and road signs, and parked cars and vans appear to be everywhere. So often I find it impossible to take the photographs I would like. On certain days wheelie bins too can ruin the appearance of a village. Although I try to avoid collection days regrettably sometimes this has just not been possible.
