Cumnor is a village west of Oxford, England with a population of about 2,000. It is located on top of Cumnor Hill, which is also the name of the ribbon development between Cumnor village and Botley on the Oxford ring road.
The village is about two miles west of Botley and its centre is situated to the west of the A420 road to Swindon. Cumnor has two public houses, the Vine and the Bear and Ragged Staff. It also has a newsagent and a post office/greengrocers. There are three churches: St Michael's (in the centre of the village), a United Reformed Church (Leys Road) and Living Stones Christian Fellowship (meeting in the Primary School), all of which have regular services.
The village has a thriving football and cricket club, both located on Appleton Road.
Cumnor Primary School has produced many distinguished pupils, who have attended schools such as Abingdon School, Magdalen College School, Oxford High School for Girls and the School of St Helen and St Katherine in Abingdon.
In Elizabethan times, Cumnor Place became notorious as the scene of the death, if not the murder, of Amy Robsart, the wife of Robert, Lord Dudley. The house was pulled down in 1810, it is said because her ghost gave the locals so much trouble.
