Location map:

A footpath lined with lime trees next to the village school leads to the village church, St. Peter's, which is basically a Norman church with Gothic additions. Fragments of Mediaeval wall paintings survive in the church, including a Doom, a traditional term for a painting or other image of the Last Judgment, over the Norman chancel arch.

Another footpath leads to the part of the village known as Lower Cassington where there are a number of attractive old cottages and the second, much smaller, village green.

Cassington is just off the A40 trunk road about 5 miles north-west of Oxford and about three quarters of a mile east of Eynsham.
