Hampton Gay is a small village in Oxfordshire. For such a small place it has an incredible history. It was finding out about the tragic train crash in 1874; the long history of the mill and the sad demise of the beautiful Elizabethan manor house that prompted us to create our website in 2010. After a short break we are back with a new look and with some new research; we hope you find our site interesting and informative.
We are constantly looking for new stories or images of Hampton Gay so if you have anything you can share with us to help with our research please get in touch. We are in particular looking for images and information on the manor house and the mill.
If you do visit HG (Hampton Gay), please be aware that the manor house is listed as dangerous and for this reason is fenced off. The ruin is a scheduled monument and is sadly listed in the top 10 list of dangerous buildings in Oxfordshire. This area is also working farmland with livestock, so please take care and keep to the public footpaths.
Keep checking back to our site as we do update regularly.
If you wish to reproduce any of our work or images, please get in touch with us.
