Spelsbury (pronEng|ˈspɛlzb(ə)ri, locally IPA| [ˈspɛw-] ) is a small English village in north-west Oxfordshire about one mile from Charlbury on a narrow hill between the Coldron and Taston brooks overlooking the Evenlode river and the Wychwood Forest to the north with a Norman church (rebuilt in the mid 1700s), a memorial fountain in the shape of a shell, and a group of almshouses of 1688. The actor Sir Ben Kingsley lives in the village.
