The Times named Chipping Norton as fifth best town to live, describing it as “peaceful and picturesque” with facilities including London-standard pubs and restaurants. Chippy’s neighbour Kingham, home to former Blur bassist-turned-cheesemaker Alex James, was also listed as was the “vibrant and stunningly pretty” Broadway - Meanwhile, Ilmington, near Shipston, was named as third best place to have a second home in Britain, beaten only by Askrigg, in North Yorkshire, and Marazion, in Cornwall.
