The town of Witney owes its origin to the Bishop of
Winchester. The Bishop's Palace site situated near to the Church on Church Green is one of 24
luxurious residencies in the
diocese and dates from the 12th century.
The archaeological remains of the great hall and
other features are exposed under a modern roof and were discovered in the early 1980s.
There is a small interpretation centre with a model
of the Palace at the height of its importance.
