North Aston is a village and civil parish about 7.5 miles (12.1 km) south of Banbury and 10 miles (16 km) north of Oxford.

The village is mainly situated around a traditional village green, complete with hand-carved sign and drinking fountain - the latter originally built in 1863 on the orders of the then Lord of the Manor, William Foster-Melliar, but restored as part of the village's celebrations of the Millennium in 1999. A majority of homes in North Aston date from Victorian times or earlier and are constructed from local limestone. Much of the village is in a conservation area and there have been few changes over the years, although a number of newer houses have been added recently

The Church of England parish church of Saint Mary the Virgin existed by 1151, when William of Aston gave it to the Augustinian Bradenstoke Priory in Wiltshire. George Gilbert Scott restored and enlarged the building in 1867. The tower has a ring of six bells, all cast by John Taylor & Co of Loughborough Since 1976 St. Mary's has belonged to a united Church of England Benefice with the neighbouring parishes of Steeple Aston and Tackley.

North Aston Hall is a large Jacobethan country house, rebuilt in the 17th century and remodelled in the 18th century
