Binsey

Background

Binsey's name most likely derives from Byni's island, which was in the nearby Thames. It belonged to St Frideswide's Priory and subsequently Christ Church became the major landowner. It survives as a predominantly small, agricultural settlement within the Green Belt and flood plain to the north-west of Oxford.
