Claydon, Oxfordshire’s most northerly village, lies within the parish of ‘Claydon with Clattercote‘, with local government services provided by Cherwell District Council and Oxfordshire County Council.

About 6 miles (10 km) north of Banbury, Claydon is the northernmost village in Oxfordshire. The parish is bounded by Warwickshire to the west and Northamptonshire to the east. Approximately 300 people currently live in the village.

The village is about 417 feet (127 m) above sea level on a hill of Early Jurassic Middle Lias clay and is believed to have existed for over 900 years.

The Stagecoach Bus Service No. 277 runs once daily to / from Banbury (Timetable available here).

The County Connect Service also serves Claydon but you must be registered to make a booking and other people can travel with you. Bookings can be made by phone or online up to an hour before you need to travel (subject to availability) and up to a week in advance (recommended). It is ‘first come first served’, so the more notice you give, the more likely you are to get your requested journey. Full details are on the County Connect website.
