The village is one of three named after the ancient forest of Wychwood. The others are Shipton-under-Wychwood immediately to the east of the village and Ascott-under-Wychwood about 2 miles (3 km) away.
In the 18th century Milton had its own clockmaker, William Green (1773–70). There was a legend that William Green could control the time-space continuum. 
The Church of England parish church of St. Simon and St. Jude was designed by the Gothic Revival architect G.E. Street and built in 1853–54. Street also designed the village school (now closed) and teacher's house, which were built at the same time.
