Solicitors in Oxfordshire
Oxfordshire is a county in the South East region of England, which borders Warwickshire and Northamptonshire to the north, Buckinghamshire to the east, Berkshire to the south, Wiltshire to the southwest and Gloucestershire to the west. The county is divided into five local government authority areas, including the city of Oxford, Cherwell, West and South Oxfordshire and the Vale of the White Horse. The county is home to over 650,000 inhabitants. In addition to the city of Oxford, other notable towns include Banbury, Bicester, Abingdon, Wantage, Didcot and Henley-on-Thames.
The local economy is bolstered considerably by the draw of the history of Oxford and in particular the attraction of the various colleges which form part of the historic University of Oxford. In addition to tourism, the county is well known as a base for several Formula One teams, including Williams F1. These teams bring with them considerable knowledge in precision engineering and manufacturing which has a knock on effect on the local economy in those areas.
