VILLAGE HISTORY Clifton Hampden is a delightful Thames side village approximately 5 miles to the east of Abingdon. The village was original known simply as 'Clifton' meaning 'tun on a cliff' in old English. From the early 14th century, there used to be a ferry across the Thames connecting the village to Long Wittenham. Several cottages in the village survive from the later part of the 16th and early part of the 17th centuries. The village hall was built in 1896.
