Locations - St Giles' Street

 

"But The Broad was all cobble, so, I fancy, was St. Giles, and most of the lesser streets, including Brasenose Lane."

[left] At the upper end of St Giles' Street is the church of St Giles which gives the street its name. As Kenneth Grahame implied, in his discussion of cobbled streets, it has had a tarmac surface for many years.

[right] There are some charming old buildings on St Giles' Street. This one is part St John's College. Adjacent to St John's College, and nearer to the centre of Oxford is Balliol college.

[left] Since 1624 there has been an annual fair at Oxford in St Giles' Street. The breadth of the street lends itself well to hosting a fair.
