Longworth is a small village of c.540 inhabitants, on an elevation known as the Golden Ridge, sandwiched between the Vale of the White Horse and the River Thames to the North. The Anglo Saxons called it Worth (worð) meaning "enclosure," or "settlement." but later prefixed with 'Long' to reflect the narrow width but long length of the village. The oldest building in the village is the parish church, St. Mary's, dating from the 13th century.
The village prides itself on its active social life, with highlights throughout the year such as carols in the square, the village fete, the village fireworks, Cafe@Church, and a monthly film club and coffee morning, as well as the delights of the Blue Boar pub, founded in 1606. The village hall hosts regular social events and active sports and keep fit sessions, including yoga. Come and visit us!
