Tourist Information

Watlington stands between the Vale of Oxford and the steep slopes of the Chilterns. The town is steeped in history and was first recorded as a Saxon settlement in the 8th Century, but the discoveries of a Bronze Age Axe and Roman Coins suggest an earlier past.

  2. The SODC Local Plan 2031 consultation on Issues and Scopes which looks at where houses in addition to the 79 already allocated to Watlington might be built (closing date 23rd July)
