Comment On Horspath
Submitted by
On 2007-09-08
The ancient village of Horspath, active since before 1066, nestles on the slopes of Shotover, one mile outside the boundary of Oxford City and surrounded by Green Belt land. The old bridle-path joining the London Road through the neighbouring village of Wheatley gave the Anglo-Saxon name of "Horsepadan", which became "Horsepath", but in 1912 the Parish Council changed to the unique form, "Horspath". Horspath is one of the very few villages around Oxford still to have a "Harvest" feast every September, around the middle of the month. The Village Green is transformed on the Monday night by quite a few of the fairground attractions which are still in the area after St. Giles Fair in Oxford. The village church of St. Giles dates from the 12th century, and is one of 15 listed buildings in Horspath.
