Chinnor is a village and civil parish in South Oxfordshire about 4mi southeast of Thame. The village is a spring line settlement on the Icknield Way below the Chiltern escarpment. Since 1932 the civil parish has included the village of Emmington.In the 21st century it is primarily a dormitory village for Thame, High Wycombe, Aylesbury and London, and in former times supported a number of furniture-making artisans.Pre-historyThe Icknield Way is a pre-Roman road. The site of an Iron Age settlement from perhaps the 4th century BC has been excavated on the Chiltern ridge in the southern part of the parish. Traces of Romano-British occupation have been found both on the same high ground and below on Icknield Way.A twin barrow on Icknield Way has been found to contain the weapons of a Saxon warrior that have been dated to the 6th century. Chinnor's toponym may originally have meant the ora ("slope") of a man called Ceona. In subsequent centuries it was variously spelt Chennore and then Chynor.
