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.
