Binfield Heath is a village and civil parish in South Oxfordshire, England. It is about 3 miles (4.8 km) southwest of Henley-on-Thames and about 4 miles (6.4 km) northeast of Reading, Berkshire.

Until 2003, Binfield Heath and the hamlet of Crowsley were part of the civil parish of Shiplake.[2]

The Crowsley Park estate, including a Grade II listed, 18th century mansion house, is within the parish.

Congregational church[edit]

The Congregational Church was built in a Gothic Revival style in 1835, which is unusual for a Nonconformist chapel built at that time.[3]

Amenities[edit]

Binfield Heath has a public house, the Bottle and Glass, and a restaurant called Orwell's which was opened in 2010 by Michelin-starred chef Ryan Simpson. [4] It also has a polo club.[5]
