Salford is a parish and village in North Oxfordshire close to the Gloucestershire and Warwickshire borders. It is a small village with a church, St. Mary’s, and a pub, The Salford Inn. It is about a mile and a half west of Chipping Norton along the A44 Chipping Norton to Moreton-in-Marsh road.

The name of Salford originates from a crossing in the London turnpike road and an old salt track from The Midlands salt mines.

Just outside the village are two spring-fed trout fishing lakes which were created out of the local marshland.

Salford Village Hall is an attractive venue and available for hire.

Salford Parish Council Meetings

 Our meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month at 7.30pm in Salford Village Hall.  All residents are welcome and encouraged to attend.  For more information click on 'The Council' link at the top of the page.  

On Tuesday, 9th April, we are holding the Annual Parish Meeting at 7.30pm in the Village Hall.   This is a meeting held for the village and run by the Parish Council, but it is not a meeting where Council business takes place.  It is an opportunity for villagers to hear reports from Parish, District and County Councillors on what has happened over the last year. All residents are welcome to attend. 

The meeting after that will be on Tuesday, 14th May, which is the annual Parish Council meeting at which Parish Council business will be carried out.
