Lower Heyford is a village and civil parish beside the River Cherwell in Oxfordshire, England, about 6 miles (10 km) west of Bicester. "Lower" distinguishes it from Upper Heyford which is about 1 mile (1.6 km) upstream along the Cherwell valley. There are both a Nether Heyford and a Little Heyford in Northamptonshire, so the current "Lower Heyford" reduces confusion. The 2011 UK census recorded the parish's population as 495.
