Witney was once famous for its weaving industry and the Domesday Book records that there were at least two mills here in 1085. It was then known as Witenie and derived its name from 'island or dry ground in marsh of a man called Witta'.
Although cloth making began in the fifteenth century the traditional blanket making started in the seventeenth and this brought much prosperity to the town as can be seen by the rich merchants houses still standing round the green. The merchants used to meet at the Old Blanket Hall which dates from the early eighteenth century and has an unusual one-handed clock.
