Aynho is the southernmost village in Northamptonshire, located 10 miles south of Banbury. Aynho traces its routes back to at least Saxon times when it was calle ‘Aienho’ meaning hill spur belonging to Aega. The village commands a fine view from its prominent spot overlooking the Cherwell Valley. Aynho is near the Oxford Canal and mooring are available at Aynho Wharf where it is also possible to enjoy food and drink at the Great Western Arms. The only pub actually in the village is the Cartwright Arms, an old coaching inn, which is named after the family who were squires in the village from 1616 to 1950s. The original home of the Cartwright, Aynho Manor, was burnt down by the Royalists when they vacated it at the end of the Civil War. It is said that Charles I stayed there after the Battle of Edgehill. Charles II paid the family compensation to restore the house to how it is now. Aynho Park, as it is now known, has a few rooms open to the public and the gardens have been laid out by the famous landscaper Capability Brown. The Church of St Michael and All Angels is built in limestone as are most of the cottages in the village and its tower dates to the fourteenth century. The church was severely damaged during the Civil War and the main body was rebuilt in 1723 in the Grecian Style. Nowadays Aynho is a vibrant community with its own community theatre and an active Women’s Institute. The ‘Aynho Apricots’ are a ladies Morris dancing group who meet regularly during the summer. Their name comes from the local tradition of growing apricots up the cottage walls.
