Welcome to the new parish website for Radley in Oxfordshire. All of the content of the old website has been retained. A great deal of effort has gone into giving the website a more modern look and into making it easier to navigate and find stuff. (The Nature pages have particularly benefited from these improvements.) The blue, gold, red and white colour scheme is largely based upon the village logo (at the bottom of each page). We hope you like the result. The site is still very new and if you come across any teething problems or other issues, please let us know.

On the site you will find information for those living in or visiting Radley, thinking of moving here, or just interested in what’s going on in the village. To find out more about the village of Radley, click on the Our Village link above, or on another link for more specific information. If you are a new visitor to the site, why not start with our photographic tour of the village? Other feature pages include Natural History of Radley,  History of the Village and History of the Railway. Please take the time to explore this site. There is lots here for everyone. It is your site. If your particular interest in Radley is not adequately covered, please let us know. New material is always welcome.
