Oxenton has been a city since 'time immemorial'. This means it is part of a collection of cities that were so before legal records even began - most modern cities were made as such in the 1500s.
With a cathedral used by ancient Mercian kings and the residencies of earls and barons, Oxenton is full of history.
Oxenton was the site of the Oxenton and Tewkesbury Railway, an important freight and passenger link between two major railway lines. Today it is partially preserved in the Gloucestershire and Warwickshire Railway.
Linked to the quarries of Oxenton Hill with a narrow-guage tramway, Oxenton quickly became a hotspot for mining and industrial trade.
Oxenton backs on to Oxenton Hill, an outlier in the Cotswold hill ranges. It is surrounded by the natural beauty of the Cotswolds area, separate from the nearby towns of Cheltenham and Tewkesbury.
An extensive public footpath network and quick public transport and road connections lets anyone experience the beautiful wildlife and scenery of the Cotswolds.
