The Church of England parish church of Saint Mary dates from the thirteenth century, but by 1741 its building in a ruinous condition and in 1743-44 all but the bell tower was rebuilt. The architect R. Phené Spiers restored the building in the 1870s.
The village flower-bed roundabout maintained by the Gardening ClubWeston Manor House is a mediaeval building that was rebuilt in the 16th century and re-fronted in about 1820. It is now a hotel.
The Church of England school was opened in 1855. Oxfordshire County Council took it over in 1920 and reorganised it as a junior school in 1937. The village had no electricity until 1931 and school had none till 1947. The school has since closed.
RAF Weston-on-the-Green is about 1 mile (1.6 km) north of the village. It was established in about 1916 for the Royal Flying Corps. It is now a parachute training station.
