Postcombe, Oxfordshire

Postcombe is a village in the civil parish of Lewknor, about 4 miles south of Thame in Oxfordshire. It is on the A40 road with the Chiltern Hills to the east and the M40 motorway just to the south. In 1971–73 the M40 Archaeological research group excavating a site at Postcombe found three Saxon graves, one of which was of a child. A bronze buckle in one of the graves dated the burials to the 7th century. The village has a public house, England's Rose, that was formerly The Feathers.
