Thorpe Mandeville is set in the rolling hillsides of rural Northamptonshire, six miles north-east of Banbury. The small village has existed for many centuries. The earliest authentic record is in the Domesday Book survey of 1086 where it is styled 'Thorp', the generic name for a village. The name Mandeville is a corruption of the family name Amundeville; Richard Amundeville and his heirs were lords of the manor during the 13th century. In 1282 Richard, and his wife Matilda, were granted a lifetime right to a weekly market and an annual fair. Find out more by visiting:
