Wootton is a village in West Oxfordshire, near the town of Woodstock. To distinguish it from another village of the same name in Oxfordshire – Wootton, Vale of White Horse – it is often referred to as Wootton-by-Woodstock. The medieval parish church of St Mary the Virgin is shared with the neighbouring villages of Glympton and Kiddington. A large part of the older area of Wootton is built on the side of a hill. The church is situated at the top of the hill. Many of the village buildings are made from Cotswold stone. The village contains two pubs, both serving food, the 17th century Kings Head Inn and the Killingworth Castle Inn. The historic town of Woodstock is just over a mile down the road and is home to Blenheim Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where Winston Churchill was born in 1874. At the centre of Woodstock is Market Place where the Town Hall is to be found. Park Street goes towards the Town Gate, one of the entrances to Blenheim Palace. Oxford Street runs along the bottom part of the town, forming a ‘triangle’ where most of the town’s shops are situated. The Oxfordshire Museum, the county museum of Oxfordshire, is housed in a large historic house, Fletcher’s House, in the centre of Woodstock.
