In 1971 the Windmill School was closed, and since then most Deddington children of secondary school age have attended The Warriner School, Bloxham.[18] The former secondary school is now the Windmill Centre and is used by Deddington Pre-School.[21] Deddington Primary School continues to use the buildings in Banbury Road.[22]

After the Norman conquest of England in 1066, William the Conqueror's step-brother Odo, Bishop of Bayeux, held the manor of Deddington. Odo had Deddington Castle built in what is now the east of the town. The castle was almost completely demolished in the 14th century. There have been two archaeological excavations at the site, in 1947 and in 1978.[citation needed] The remains were reburied once the excavations were complete and only the extensive earthworks are visible today.

In population Deddington is a village but it has a small commercial centre with a market place and its local football team is called Deddington Town FC.[2]

From 1673 Deddington had a charity school "in a corner of the church".[18] In 1815 separate boys' and girls' National Schools were founded to take over from the charity school.[18] By 1816 the two schools were teaching 35 children between them, including about 20 from neighbouring parishes.[18] By 1832 the school was housed in converted buildings, including a barn, attached to Appletree Farm in Hopcraft Lane.[18]

Deddington Wesleyan Reform Church was built in 1851[8] and is a member of the Wesleyan Reform Union.[9]

Deddington is a civil parish in Oxfordshire about 6 miles (10 km) south of Banbury. The 2011 Census recorded the parish's population as 2,146.[1]

In 1951 the Windmill Secondary Modern School was completed on the site of the former windmill in Hempton Road[18] and the former National School was reorganised as a primary school. In 1958 the Diocese of Oxford modernised the primary school with a new kitchen, cloakrooms, WCs, corridor, a new classroom and enlarged windows for the old classrooms.[20] The modernisation was designed by the Diocesan Surveyor, the architect T. Lawrence Dale.[20]

The name is thought to derive from Daeda, probably an early Anglo-Saxon nobleman, and means "the place of the people of Daeda". The village is believed to have been first settled in the 6th or 7th century AD.[citation needed]

Pack up a picnic and visit the Rollright Stones, which have a history spanning nearly 2,000 years of Neolithic and Bronze Age development. Legend has it that these stones are all that's left of a monarch and his courtiers, who were petrified by a witch. At North Leigh Roman Villa you can see the remains of a large and well-built Roman courtyard villa, set within peaceful countryside.

This castle was the Oxfordshire base of Odo of Bayeux, half-brother of William the Conqueror and a powerful man in England after the Norman Conquest. Extensive earthworks mark the site of the 11th century motte-and-bailey castle, with ramparts up to 15 metres high. Read more about the history of Deddington Castle.

In 1643, during the English Civil War, Charles I requisitioned the bells from the damaged tower,[6] presumably for scrap. Thereafter there is no record of SS Peter and Paul having any bells until the middle of the 18th century, by which time it had a ring of four.[6] The present tower has a ring of eight bells cast by the Whitechapel Bell Foundry: six by Thomas Mears in 1791 and two by Mears and Stainbank in 1946.[7]

Joshua Gibbs was either apprenticed to or employed by the Fardons.[15] He traded first at Souldern and then succeeded the Fardons at Deddington,[15] perhaps when John Fardon (III) moved to Woodstock in 1838. Gibbs' dates of birth and death are not known but he was trading from 1805 until 1855.[15]
