How many people live in Jericho?

In 2011 Jericho had a population of 1,400 residents living in households.  There are no communal establishment residents. There has been little change in the total number of residents since 2001.

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.
