The village of Great Barrington lies on the eastern border of the county on the north bank of the River Windrush, 3 miles west of Burford and 6 miles east of Northleach. Until 1844 a section of Great Barrington was a detached part of Berkshire (in the 18th century 23 houses in the village were in Berkshire) ; this arrangement appears to have originated when one of the estates became part of the royal manor in the late 11th century. Great Barrington is a compact village with many fine buildings, the western end and the position of the church within Barrington Park, may indicate that the village contracted to make way for the park; this end of the village is known as the Green, probably the site of the village green! Great Barrington formed part of the estates of Llanthony Priory who retained control until the Dissolution. By 1314 Barrington was a centre for the shearing of the Priory`s Cotswold wool; in the early 16th century some 2000 sheep were being sheared a year. Barrington Park is a large 18th century house, it replaced an earlier 16th century manor house. The new house may have been designed by William Kent who is known to have designed a pair of gate-posts in the park. St.Mary`s church is Norman but with late Perpendicular alterations and contains some fine monuments. The village contains 17th, 18th & 19th century buildings, including the Fox Inn of about 1755, in the mid 20th century the village underwent gradual change as cottages were combined to form bigger houses and modernised. With the sites of two Roman Villas nearby, fine walks along the river and the market town of Burford only 3 miles away, make Great Barrington an ideal base from which to explore the delights of the Cotswolds,
