Hook Norton Images

Hook Norton is a village on the edge of The Cotswolds some 20 miles north west of Oxford and 10 miles south west of Banbury. However, the nearest town is Chipping Norton , some 6 miles to the south east. The population is approximately 2400. In the past the village was well known for its ironstone works and the Banbury and Cheltenham District Railway which served the station. Sadly all that remains of the latter, which finally closed in 1964, are the stone pillars that supported the two viaducts to the south of the village. Evidence of the ironstone works is a little harder to find, but some still remains. Hook Norton Brewery, which was founded in 1849, is, however, still going strong producing a variety of beers which have worldwide renown. This web site shows a selection of images from the village. More information can be obtained from the site owner, David McGill.
