The Bartons’ History Group has been active in the Bartons’ villages in Oxfordshire for the last 40 years. Over this period many images, documents, research articles and stories have been collected and stored on this web-site. Feel free to browse and research your own or our villages histories. Of particular interest is the photographic gallery collected by the late Audrey Martin which can be found HERE. Further, more recent additions to this gallery can be found HERE.
