Enstone is an English village and civil parish about 4 miles (6.4 km) east of Chipping Norton and 15 miles (24 km) north-west of Oxford city. The civil parish, one of Oxfordshire’s largest, consists of the villages of Church Enstone and Neat Enstone (i. e. Enstone), with the hamlets of Chalford, Cleveley, Fulwell, Gagingwell, Lidstone and Radford. Chipping Norton is the highest town in Oxfordshire, situated on the western slopes of a hillside that was once the site of a Norman Castle. ‘Chipping’ is derived from ceapen, an old English word meaning market. There has been a market here since the 13th century and was a major wool trading town in the 15th century.
