Appleton lies on a quiet country road which runs from Cumnor to the north east towards Longworth and Hinton Waldrist to the south west, and which runs virtually parallel with the busy A420 Oxford to Swindon road. The road winds through the centre of the village past several old stone and thatched cottages.

Down a short lane in the centre of the village is the 12th century Grade II* listed Church of St Laurence which has a Norman arcade and nave and has grown during the centuries by additions and restorations. For the history and full information about St. Laurence's Church click here.

The 12th century moated manor house stands in the centre of the village and is still lived in as a family home.

Eaton is a tiny hamlet betwen Appleton and Cumnor which has little more than a few cottages and a charming pub whose garden, complete with Aunt Sally pitch is right beside the road.
