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.

Household waste recycling centres set for refresh in March and April
11 March 2023
People planning to use Oxfordshire’s household waste recycling centres next month are being warned about a series of short closures to enable essential work to be carried out.
For safety reasons, Oxfordshire County Council will be shutting each of its centres for two days – although never at the same time – to allow for deep cleaning and essential maintenance to take place. This includes jet washing the sites and structures, repainting lines and safety areas, as well as other general work to improve the customer experience.
The closing dates are:
- Alkerton, near Banbury: Monday 20 and Tuesday 21 March
- Ardley, near Bicester: Thursday 23 and Friday 24 March
- Dix Pit, Stanton Harcourt: Monday 24 and Tuesday 25 April
- Drayton, near Abingdon: Thursday 30 and Friday 31 March
- Oakley Wood, near Wallingford: Thursday 20 and Friday 21 April
- Redbridge, Oxford: Monday 17 and Tuesday 18 April
- Stanford, near Farringdon: Monday 27 and Tuesday 28 March.
All closures are on quieter weekdays to minimise disruption and sites will reopen at 8am the following day. Residents are asked to plan ahead, ideally holding on to their waste until the site reopens or, if that is not possible, visiting one of the neighbouring sites.
More information can be found on Oxfordshire County Council’s website, including details of your nearest alternative site during the closures.
Residents with van or trailer permits can use these at any of the HWRCs.… [ Continue reading article ]
