The Parish of Gosford and Water Eaton is predominately within the green belt area nestled between the north of the City of Oxford and the village of Kidlington. The parish contains the village of Gosford and the hamlet of Water Eaton, although it is often mistaken for being part of Kidlington as there are no natural boundaries between the two parishes.
Today, the area has a wealth of facilities and services to support the local and surrounding communities, these include but not limited to Edward Feild Primary School, Gosford Hill School, Kidlington and Gosford Leisure Centre, Thames Valley Police Headquarters, Gosford Hill Medical Centre, the Water Eaton Park and Ride which serves Oxford and the local Hospitals, North Oxford Golf Club and many many more.
The most recent addition to the area was the first new rail link between a major British city and London in over 100 years. The Oxford Parkway Station opened in October 2015.
