Once it stood to collect 1-Charlbury, Oxon
The name Charlbury - Ceorl's bury (?) is said to date from Anglo Saxon times. This village beside the River Evenlode once hosted many trades and was a centre of the glove-making industry from the 1800s to the 1960s. There was once an annual fair, held on a number of sites in the village, but this was stopped in 1857 when the proceedings became too rowdy. Sadly the YHA vanished from the place some years ago. In the churchyard is the grave of a man who was killed during the making of the railway 'by a fall of earth in Sydenhams Mead'. This is Tollhouse Cottage, built in the 19th century by the Charlbury Turnpike Trust to collect tolls on the Dyers Hill entrance to the village. Time taken 2.39 pm BST (British Summer Time).
