    Kidlington – 5 Quirky Facts

    1. Just Say No
      So far despite an increase in population and the fact that the numbers are well above those of many small towns, Kidlington fiercely defends its designation as a ‘village’. It’s easy to see why, with a number of small winding roads, listed buildings, charming houses and sleepy (in the best, quintessentially English way) village feel.
    2. Beechams Powders
      The famous remedy was invented in Kidlington. Thomas Beecham actually worked as a gardener at Hampden Manor while living in a cottage nearby and spending his non-green fingered time working on his powders. Beecham learnt about herbal remedies while a shepherd boy. He moved to Wigan where he started selling Beecham’s Pills which were a laxative. He gradually grew a large business in the North West before building his own factory and selling nationally. His eldest son became Sir Joseph Beecham and took the company to new heights and his grandson became an internally renowned conductor.
    3. Early Days
      The village sits on a Roman road (the original route through the village is no longer used) and ‘Chedelintone’ as it was then appeared in the Domesday book as having 32 villagers, 8 smallholders, 2 slaves, 3 meadows, a mill and was worth the princely annual sum of 14 pounds.
    4. Isambard Kidlington Brunel
      Kidlington’s former railway station was designed by the great Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Sadly, trains no longer stop in the village but the building itself still stands. There certainly aren’t many villages that can claim to be home to one of Brunel’s designs.
    5. Sir William Morton
      One of Kidlington’s most famous sons, Sir William Morton actually married into the area, his wife Anne Smyth was the daughter of local man John Smyth. Sir William had been born into wealth and became a judge and member of parliament. At the outbreak of the Civil War he sided with the royalists and became commander of Sudeley Castle. The castle fell after one of his officers betrayed him and Morton along with 300 of his men were sent to the Tower of London. He was eventually released and spent the later part of his life back in Kidlington.

    This charming village punches well above its weight in terms of amenities. The population means it is smaller than some ‘towns’ but fiercely retains its village status and quite rightly so. It’s easy to see why, with delightful winding streets, leafy gardens, historic houses, this is picture postcard Britain, just on the edge of the beautiful Cotswolds.


    Kidlington has a small shopping centre which features some great independent shops. There is a leisure centre with a gym, swimming pool, sports hall and fitness classes. Between 9am and 4pm the high street holds a very popular market with all kinds of goods and tasty treats. There are a number of spots for fishing, riding centres and several golf clubs in the area.


    7 miles north of Oxford the quiet village of Kidlington rests close to the meeting point of the A44 and A34, not far from the M40 motorway, offering access to London and the Midlands. There is no longer a train station in operation but regular bus routes cross the area. Oxford International Airport offers an easy escape.
