St. Nicholas is mainly 13th-century, with a 14th-century tower and Victorian chancel. The exterior features notable gargoyles and, on the east wall, a stone carving of two green men. There is a ring of 6 bells which were re-hung in 2006.

In 2008 the Church was re-ordered which included the provision of an under-floor heating system, toilet and kitchen facilities, new lighting and a room in the Bell Tower and a purpose built screened area in the North Transept which is used by the local school during the week.

The Church is used as a concert venue.

Chadlington is part of the rural Chase Benefice lying in rolling countryside in north-west Oxfordshire on the edge of the Cotswolds. It is an area of outstanding natural beauty. The benefice encompasses parishes from the Evenlode and Glyme valleys and stretches from the north-east to the south of Chipping Norton. The Benefice was formed in 2001 being a combination of two previous Benefices divided in part by the A44 trunk road running from Worcester to Oxford. It consists of the villages of Chadlington, Spelsbury and Ascott-under-Wychwood to the south of the A44 and Enstone and Heythrop to the north. The main centres of population are in Enstone and Chadlington, although each of the five villages has its own church [one parish has two!] and congregations.

Visitors are always very welcome.
