Childrey is a fine example of an English village with its long main street, parish church, village green with its pond and a pleasant assortment of period cottages, it nestles comfortably at the foot of the Downs on the edge of the Vale of White Horse. 

The Vale is a mainly agricultural landscape, steeped in rich history, the White Horse from which the area takes its name, dates back to prehistoric times, Alfred the Great of Wessex was born in nearby Wantage in 849AD, and Childrey itself has strong Civil War connections.
