A Bit About Carterton
Carterton’s main road was one of the most important trade routes in the UK during the Mediaeval period, used by trains of pack horses to transport Cotswold wool to Southampton for export to the weaving centres of Europe. Carterton’s rich farming history continued with black grapes from Frenchester Nurseries and Carterton tomatoes being sold at Covent Garden Market. The town is well known in the smallholding and market gardening worlds.
The town expanded quickly in 1937 when the Royal Air Force built the Brize Norton airbase, which is now the Royal Air Force’s largest operating base.
Location and Travel
Based in West Oxfordshire in the Cotswolds, Carterton is the second largest town in South Oxfordshire and is located four miles southwest of Witney, just off the A40. Further up the A40 is Burford and Carterton is less than an hour by road to Cheltenham. With excellent motorway access via the M5 and M40, Carterton is ideally located for ease of access through the Cotswolds.
The town is also accessible by train, with railway stations at Shipston under Wychwood and Finstock. Carterton is well served by local buses, including the 853 which takes visitors to the Crocodiles of the World tourist attraction.
The town itself is well maintained and a bustling, lively place. It has a modern town centre and many local amenities including a leisure centre, as well as pubs, shops and a supermarket. Many visitors to Carterton are drawn here by the tourist attractions Crocodiles of the World, Cotswold Farm Park and the Cotswold Wildlife Park and Gardens, all of which are only a short car or bus ride away.
