Great Rollright is a parish on the Oxfordshire-Warwickshire border, about 2.5 miles (4 km) north of Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire. It is named after the megalithic Rollright Stones located about 1.5 miles (2.4 km) to the west.

The civil parish of Rollright was formed in 1932 from the former civil parishes of Great Rollright and Little Rollright.

The mediaeval Church of England parish church of Saint Andrew has Norman, Early English, Decorated Gothic and Perpendicular Gothic features. St. Andrew's was restored in 1852 under the direction of the Oxford Diocesan architect, GE Street. St. Andrew's is a Grade I listed building.
