Minster Lovell is a village and civil parish on the River Windrush about 2+1/2mi west of Witney in Oxfordshire. The 2011 Census recorded the parish's population as 1,409.Minster Lovell village has three parts: Old Minster, Little Minster and New Minster. Old Minster includes the parish church, Minster Lovell Hall and the Old Swan Inn and Minster Mill Hotel. A large part of New Minster is the Charterville Allotments, which were founded by the Chartists in 1846–50.ArchaeologyIn 1952 a Neolithic stone hand axe was found at Minster Lovell. It is unusually large: 324mm long by 101mm wide. The geologist Professor K.C. Dunham identified it as epidotised tuff from Stake Pass in the Lake District, to the north. Stone axes from the same source have been found at Alvescot, Kencot, Abingdon and Sutton Courtenay.HistoryThe dedication of the Church of England parish church to the Saxon Saint Kenelm and the name "Minster" in the toponym suggest that the village may have had a Saxon minster, possibly associated with a Mercian royal vill. However, the earliest known documentary record of the church is from 1183 and the present St. Kenelm's Church is the product of complete rebuilding in the 15th century.
