Things to do in Hethe, Oxfordshire

Hethe is a quiet little village, where there are buses out to Bicester and Brackley, then if you'd like to go further out to Oxford, or Banbury.

Hethe used to have three churches, a Methodist, Catholic and Church of England Protestant. The Methodist one no longer exists. There used to be a convenience grocery store, a Bicycle shop, an off license and a Pub. Now the only thing left is the Public House which is called the Whitmore Arms. There is a store about a mile away in Hardwick now. They have some good selections to choose from considering the size of the store.

Netbe is a nice little village and connects with Fringford and Cottisford, as well as Juniper Hill. There was a famous Author who grew up in Juniper. Her books are still available and she was my great aunt, Flora Thompson. Her best seller was "Lark Rise" It is now a Trilogy called "Lark Rise To Candleford" The house where my aunt was born is still there and has a plaque on it. The church in Cottisford has some information on Flora Thompson also. I went to Cottisford School growing up,and Flora Thompson attended the same school but in the '800s. There are still celebrations of her books and anniversary gatherings regularly in the little Hamlet of Juniper Hill.
