Taynton is a village and civil parish about 1 1⁄2 miles (2.4 km) northwest of Burford in the West Oxfordshire District. The village is on Coombe Brook, a tributary of the River Windrush. The parish is bounded in the south by the River Windrush, in the north partly by Coombe Brook and its tributary Hazelden Brook, in the west by the county boundary with Gloucestershire and in the east by field boundaries. The 2001 UK census recorded the parish's population as 108.

Taynton produced a high quality limestone used in many well known buildings in the south of England, but its use was somewhat hindered by the problems of transporting it to fairly distant navigable rivers like the Thames. For more information, see the EN Wikipedia article Taynton, Oxfordshire.
