Oxfordshire – Chipping Norton
Chipping Norton is a market town in the western part of Oxfordshire. Julius Sladden lived here for nearly a decade, from August 1869 to January 1879, before moving to Badsey.
The main businesses in the town were Hitchman’s Brewery, where Julius worked, and Bliss Tweed Mill – Julius was friendly with the owners of the mill.
Chipping Norton railway opened in 1855, linking the town with the Oxford, Worcester and Wolverhampton Railway at Kingham Station.
