Heythrop, Oxfordshire

Heythrop is a village and civil parish just over 2 miles east of Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire. The parish includes the hamlet of Dunthrop. Heythrop had a Norman parish church of Saint Nicholas, but the nave has been demolished and only the chancel has been preserved as a mortuary chapel. The chapel's west doorway was the south doorway of the former nave. In 1657 an attempt to merge the Benefices of Enstone and Heythrop was abandoned in the face of local opposition.
