Parish church[edit]

The earliest parts of the Church of England parish church of Saint Philip are 13th-century, and include the chancel arch and buttresses. The present south windows of the chancel were inserted in the 15th-century. The nave was rebuilt in the 16th century. The tower was built or rebuilt in 1617. The south porch and doorway, and a five-light window on the south side of the nave may be of the same date.[1]

Inside the church are two 17th-century monuments to members of the Dixon family. The church is a Grade II* listed building.[2]

St Philip's is part of the parish of Parish of Little Compton, Chastleton, Cornwell, Little Rollright and Salford.[3] The parish is part of the Team Benefice of Chipping Norton, along with the parishes of Chipping Norton with Over Norton, Churchill and Kingham.[4]
