Station Road was re-opened on Tuesday morning, 18th April.
Original News Item: Monday afternoon, 17th April 2017
Station Road is cordoned off by police as they and the fire service deal with a fire in the field.
A large stack of dried miscanthus is currently alight in the field West of Station road — a police helicopter is circling above the village, possibly looking for potential arson suspects?
This is the second time such a fire has occurred involving a stack of miscanthus — otherwise destined for use as fuel in an Oxfordshire power station. A similar event occurred two or three years ago on the same spot.
The field in question has a permissive right of way for walkers. It seem likely that this facility may have to be revised at certain times of the year in future.
