Kingston Lisle

Kingston Lisle is a pretty Oxfordshire downland village just off the Ridgeway in the Vale of White Horse. It’s home to around 250 people, 2 racing stables, the Blowing Stone Inn, Kingston Lisle Park, a church, village hall, playground and cemetery.

At the heart of the village and on the fringes of Kingston Lisle Park is the delightful 12th-century church of St John the Baptist which was extensively restored in 2017.

The parish council run the village hall, which is available for hire, the children’s playground and the cemetery.

Kingston Lisle is famous for the Blowing Stone; supposedly King Alfred blew through the stone to call his troops to fight the Danes. The Blowing Stone is also the name of our local inn.
