About Wantage

Wantage is a town and civil parish in the Vale of the White Horse, near the Thames Valley, in the English county of Oxfordshire (formerly in Berkshire), and approximately 10 miles south-southwest of Oxford. It is famous for being the birthplace of King Alfred the Great. Wantage was a small Roman settlement, but the origins of the name are somewhat controversial.

It is generally thought to be a Saxon phrase meaning 'Decreasing River'. King Alfred the Great was born at the Royal palace there, in the 9th century. Wantage appears in the Domesday Book of 1086. Its value was £61 and it was in the King's ownership until Richard I passed it to the Earl of Albemarle in 1190. Weekly trading rights were first granted to the town by Henry III in 1216. Markets are now held twice weekly, on Wednesday and Saturday.
