| Overthorpe, Northamptonshire ： ウィキペディア英語版|
Overthorpe is a village and civil parish in South Northamptonshire, about east of Banbury in Oxfordshire and southeast of junction 11 of the M40 motorway. Overthorpe is in the west of Northamptonshire, and its western boundary forms part of the county boundary with Oxfordshire. It is part of the informal district of Banburyshire.
The 2001 Census recorded the parish's population as 242.
The Manor House is 17th-century, with a Tudor Revival rear extension that was added about 1930. The village has at least three other 17th-century houses and a 17th- or 18th-century barn.
An open field system of farming prevailed in Overthorpe until the 18th century. Traces of ridge and furrow survive north of the village. Overthorpe used to be part of the parish of Middleton Cheney, but its land tenure was linked with that of Warkworth. Parliament passed a single Inclosure Act for both Overthorpe and Warkworth in 1764.
