Great Coxwell, near Faringdon, is where George Martin lived aparently. One can walk quite pleasantly around Badbury Clump. Just across the road from the car park is a fantastic tithe barn.
5 minutes away by car is the village of Coleshill where there is a large estate. It was around here that Churchill had his secret army hidden.
The Radnor Arms is a fine pub, with its own real ales.
