Sandford St. Martin is a village and civil parish in West Oxfordshire about 6.5 miles (10.5 km) east of Chipping Norton and about 9 miles (14 km) south of Banbury.

The village was known as Sandford until about 1884, when the suffix St. Martin was added to distinguish the village from other local settlements with similar names.[2] The village is centred on a former ford on Tyte brook, a tributary of the River Dorn.
