About This Book

This book is the result of a two-year project by the Chipping Norton Buildings Record. It focuses on Chipping Norton before 1750, bringing together what we can learn from the built environment with documentary evidence from printed sources and national and local archives. The first part looks at ‘The medieval town, 1000 to 1540’, ‘The age of Henry Cornish, 1540 to 1660’ and ‘Rebuilding the town, 1660 to 1750’, whilst the second part is a series of walks along each of the medieval streets in turn, to see what remains today of its early fabric.
