The village was formerly on the A421 but from 1998 has been bypassed by a dual carriageway.

The parish comprises about 2,300 acres (930 ha) of mainly arable farmland and pasture with some woodland. Part of the village is a Conservation Area and a number of the 450 dwellings are listed buildings.

History

The remains of a Roman villa provide evidence of early habitation in the parish. [2] It is about 440 yards (400 m) northeast of the village, about 200 yards (180 m) from the river and lies east of Tingewick Mill. [3] The villa was partly excavated in 1860–62. [2] [3]

The toponym is derived from the Old English for "Teoda's dwelling". The Domesday Book of 1086 records the village as Tedinwiche. [2]

The earliest part of the Church of England parish church of Saint Mary Magdalene is the Norman 12th century nave. [2] The three-bay north aisle was added in about 1200. [2] The Perpendicular gothic [4] chancel and bell-tower were added late in the 15th century. [2] The north aisle was altered in the 17th century, the south aisle was added in 1830 and the south porch in 1867. [2]

The tower has a ring of five bells. [2] The oldest was cast in London in about 1490 [5] and is inscribed Nomen Magdalene Campana Gerit Melodie. [2] The second bell was cast by Bartholomew Atton of Buckingham [5] in 1591. [6] Robert Atton of Buckingham [5] cast the fourth bell in 1623 [6] and the treble bell in 1627. [6] The youngest bell in the ring is the tenor, cast by Henry Bagley III of Chacombe and Witney [5] in 1721. [6]

Amenities

The village has one public house, the Royal Oak, with The Crown, a grade II listed building, closing permanently in 2013. Tingewick has a village hall, a Post Office and village shop, a pottery, an auction room, an agricultural metal work factory, an animal feed warehouse and a farm supplies depot.

Tingewick is served by Roundwood Primary School, [7] which was formed by merging the Tingewick and Gawcott infants schools.

The village has held three large charity concerts called 'Party in the Paddock' in 2004, 2005 and 2008. [8] The event has included acts such as Bernie Marsden, Roger Daltrey with The Who, Zak Starkey, Marillion, Don Airey and Nikki Murray. There are rumours circulating that Peter Andre is set to appear in the summer of 2022 along with special guest Naan Bread, however nothing has been officially confirmed.

Tingewick Meadows is a Site of Special Scientific Interest south of the village.
