- County and
Berrick Salome Parish
The Parish is located in central south Oxfordshire and connected by rural country lanes to Benson, Ewelme, Chalgrove and Newington. The open fields on the southern edge of The Parish give an extensive view over the Thames Valley to the long line of the Berkshire Downs, with the isolated chalk ridge of the Sinodun Hills crowned by Wittenham Clumps, as a focus in front of them. To the east, the foothills of the Chilterns can be seen. The Parish is approximately one mile from the River Thames.
The Parish is historically an agricultural community, comprising four settlements: Rokemarsh, Roke, Berrick Salome and Berrick Prior. These are arranged in a triangle, with Rokemarsh located at the southerly corner, Roke at the south-east corner, and Berrick Prior and Berrick Salome at the northern corner.
A comprehensive description of the Parish is available on Wikipedia.
The Parish is in the course of preparing their Neighbourhood Plan, which has a separate site.
