Farthinghoe is a village and civil parish in South Northamptonshire, England. It is located on the A422 road about 3 miles (4.8 km) north-west of Brackley and 5 miles (8.0 km) south-east of Banbury.

At the time of the 2001 census, the parish's population was 418 people,[1] reducing slightly to 413 at the 2011 census.[3]

Buildings[edit]

The parish church is dedicated to St Michael and of 13th-century origin. There are monuments to Henrietta and Catherine Rush (d.1801) and George Rush (d.1806).[4] This is by the celebrated London sculptor, Charles Regnart.[5]

Other buildings of note are Abbey Lodge west of the church, believed to be 1581 and Farthinghoe Lodge about 1 mile south west.[4]

Most of the village is a conservation area.[6]

Farthinghoe railway station closed completely in 1963.
