We are situated in the picturesque Vale of the White Horse, which stretches from Abingdon to Shrivenham, beneath the rolling Downs.
Geological note: The Vale of White Horse is a hanging valley with successive bands of Cretaceous and Jurassic strata held beneath the Cretaceous chalk hills (White Horse Hills) by the Jurassic limestone ridge, which runs from Faringdon to Oxford. The scarp face of the limestone ridge drops down to the Thames Valley throughout its length. The Vale is drained by the River Ock, which flows into the River Thames at Abingdon.
