The explanation for West End being in the North of Witney dates to when it was originally on the western boundary of the adjacent parish of Hailey. It has been described as "one of Britain's best-preserved streets" and is understood to have been the inspiration behind the song "Just an Old Fashioned House in an Old Fashioned Street."

Witney is the largest Oxfordshire Cotswolds town with a long history (appearing as 'Witenie' in the Domesday Book 1086 entry) and is now a bustling town supporting two colourful markets a week. Its location on the banks of the River Windrush led to the manufacture of high quality blankets known the world over until the last mill was closed in 2002. (The local football club was known as "The blanketmen"). Much of the town's fine architecture reflects the wealth of the woollen trade in its heyday. The rich variety of shops, street cafes, and excellent sporting facilities coupled with higher order services that include a hospital greatly add to the quality of life.

A mainline rail service to Oxford and London Paddington is available from Long Hanborough about 5.5 miles away with journey times of 9 and 70 minutes respectively.

Witney has three secondary schools with Henry Box tracing its roots back to 1660 and the respected independent Cokethorpe School is nearby. The recently refurbished Abingdon and Witney College offers a range of tertiary courses for school leavers and adults.

SERVICES Mains electricity, water and gas fired central heating.
