Wytham is a village and civil parish on the Seacourt Stream, a branch of the River Thames, about 3 miles northwest of the centre of Oxford. It is just west of the Western By-Pass Road, part of the Oxford Ring Road . The nearest village is Godstow.
Wytham was the northernmost part of Berkshire until the 1974 boundary changes transferred it to Oxfordshire. The toponym is first recorded as Wihtham around AD 957, and comes from the Old English for a homestead or village in a river-bend.
