Where the community centre came from?
The centre was built at the end of the 19th century as the Church Institute for St. Barnabas.
Margaret Thatcher used to live here?
In her Oxford days, she lived at 12 Richmond Road. It is alleged she shared the house with two red-hot communists who lived on a diet of sausages. This may account for her later views on socialists and known dislike of sausages.
