Kingston Bagpuize with Southmoor is situated 10 miles south-west of Oxford at the junction of the A420 and A415.
The parish lies on the 'Golden Ridge' of Corallian limestone which runs from Cumnor to Faringdon. Its fertile soils have nurtured farms famous for their fruit and hops. The name comes from de Bachepuise, a Norman family who controlled the estates after the Conquest. The building of a bypass has encouraged recent development and the population is 2269 (source: openlylocal.com, 2001). The village shops and services are used by many neighbouring communities.

The Village Hall is a facility of which the village can be justly proud. Opened in 1987, after a protracted period of active fund-raising and intense negotiations, it has received wide acclaim for its design and facilities. It is a charity run by an elected Management Committee, and is available for group, society, club and personal bookings throughout the year.
