Little village some admire
    In the North of Oxfordshire
Little village do you know
    I lived in you some years ago?
I wonder –as I cannot see–
    If things are like they used to be.

There can be little doubt that if the Parishioner who penned these words many years ago, dropped in on Souldern today, he would find that whilst the spine of the village remains little changed, as time has moved on the character and fabric of the community have changed considerably. Souldern retains it natural charm and beauty, and remains one of the hidden gems in the English Countryside.

Welcome to the Souldern Village Website, which has been created to be used by the parishioners of the village, and others who may be interested in the content that has been posted. The site is packed with information relating to past, present and future events.

Announcements / News items and local information will be posted regularly.


Souldern or “Sulthorn” as it was originally named was founded before Roman times, the village was established on the site of excellent freshwater springs, some of which to this day continue to flow through the village pond. More details of the history of our village may be found in the history section of this site.

The Calendar lists current activities in Souldern.

If there is any more information that you would like to see on the site, please let us know!
