Construction work on RAF Brize Norton began in 1935. Wartime saw the rapid growth of the base. Following a raid which destroyed 46 aircraft, the remainder were dispersed round the village and one hangar which is now an Aldi supermarket on the Alvescot Road. From 1950 to 1965 the camp was to be the home of the USAF bomber wings. The RAF returned in 1965 and undertook a large building programme making RAF Brize Norton its main air transport base in the country.[2]

Carterton is one of Oxfordshire’s newest towns and the second largest in West Oxfordshire. In 1894 the enterprising William Carter bought part of the Duke of Marlborough's estate and parcelled it up in to 6 acre plots, which he then sold off to settlers. At first it was known for its market garden produce, tomatoes in particular, but in 1935 the Royal Air Force arrived: RAF Brize Norton is now Britain's largest air base.

With the growth of the village, the small mission church at the central crossroads was replaced in 1963 by the church of St. John the Evangelist. The link with the mother church of St. Mary's at Black Bourton was kept alive by the donation of one of the bells from the tower. This was made by H. Knight of Reading and is dated 1619.[2]

The town of Carterton has a varied mix of housing. The new development of Shilton Park has added many more houses to the current stock.

The pattern of the present settlement dates from 1894 when part of the estate was sold to Homesteads Limited whose director was William Carter. The land was divided into plots of 6 acres and sold for £20 an acre with bungalows costing from £120. Many of the settlers were retired soldiers and people moving from the towns. Carterton soon made its name in the market gardening world. Black grapes from Frenchester Nurseries and the famous Carterton tomatoes were sold at Covent Garden Market.[2]
