The Library is in Newton Square
at the bottom end of Luke Street. It provides a range of facilities
- including computer access to the Internet - three times a week. The
library is housed in an old 18th century house - originally built by the Lord of the Manor - it seems it once served as the toll booth for the regular markets and for Bampton Charter Fair.
