Steeple Barton is in North Oxfordshire, halfway between Oxford and Banbury and is one of two villages that comprise the Bartons, the other being Westcote Barton.

In medieval times there was a sizeable settlement near Steeple Barton. However, following the Black Death and when the population was restored the people moved to the central part and this area was called Middle Barton. This is where most of the people live but is not a parish. Only Steeple Barton has a parish council and this is the official site of that parish.

Please the contact the Clerk via email if you have questions concerning the work of the Parish Council, if you have any concerns that you feel the Council should be aware of or where it can help or support you.
