16 Market Place, Faringdon, Oxfordshire, SN7 7HP
Its strategic position between the Thames and Ridgeway has given rise to a long history for the town. Faringdon (meaning "fern covered hill") was the first capital of the ancient kingdom of Wessex and Alfred the Great had his castle here.
The Domesday book records a manor with mill, fishing and land for 15 ploughs. The great tithe barn at nearby Great Coxwell by the Abbey of Beaulieu bears evidence to the fertility of the Vale of White Horse.
King John gave the town a royal charter in 1216 for a weekly market which continues to this day in the market place.
Today, Faringdon Community College is a popular 11 to 18 mixed comprehensive school, situated on the edge of Faringdon, occupying a large, attractively-landscaped site with an excellent range of specialist accommodation. The school has achieved "Outstanding" in its recent Ofsted Report.

“Dear Sarah and Michelle,
It would be remiss of me not to drop you a short note to thank you, not only for your sheer professionalism but also especially for the kindness and sensitivity that you both showed to me during the recent sale of my mother's home in Faringdon.
I know that you are aware this has been a very sad and disturbing period for my family. We have all had any number of burdens placed upon us but, because of your involvement, the sale of the property was at least one area that I was totally happy to leave in your hands. Any worry or concern that I may have harboured was negated by the constant updating I received on every piece of information relating to every potential sale.
From the outset, you put me at ease with your assured competence that was also so very comforting. It has transpired that every piece of advice you gave me was spot on and, in the current economic turmoil, I still find it hard to believe that the entire business was finalised in just a few short weeks; I am quite certain this was only achieved because of your close professional attention to every detail.
When I lived in Faringdon almost 50 years ago Messrs Hobbs and Chambers had the very highest of reputations in and around Faringdon - nothing has changed with the change of ownership and people.
Yours very sincerely,
” - Roger
