North Moreton is a village and civil parish about 2 miles (3 km) east of Didcot. It was part of Wallingford Rural District in Berkshire until the 1974 boundary changes transferred it to the new South Oxfordshire District of Oxfordshire.
The Church of England parish church of All Saints was built in the 13th century and the chantry chapel of the Stapleton family was added in the 14th century. This has geometrical tracery, carving outside, and an east window filled with 14th century stained glass showing the Passion of Christ and incidents in the lives of the Virgin Mary, Saint Peter, Saint Paul and Saint Nicholas.
