Brightwell-cum-Sotwell is a village and civil parish located in South Oxfordshire, England. Situated about 2 miles or 3.2 km southeast of Wallingford, the village has a long history dating back to at least the Saxon period. The name “Brightwell” is believed to derive from the Old English words “beorht,” meaning bright or clear, and “well,” referring to a spring or stream.
