Come and discover more about this fascinating but often overlooked area of Oxford with local historian Liz Woolley. Its history goes back to Saxon times, when south of what is now Folly Bridge was open marshy meadowland, bisected by a huge causeway or grand pont of forty arches, the probable site of the original oxen ford which gave the city its name. Later the area was home to Oxford’s first waterworks, railway station and football ground, and was a hive of industrial and commercial activity.
