Ros Weatherall said: “Paul was not sure that the people of Jericho realised quite what was happening. He wanted us to start thinking about how the whole place was developing, rather than just accepting piecemeal things that are offered from different developers as they come along.”

Walton Street, one of the city’s key north-south routes, is likely to become more congested, with many more cyclists and pedestrians. People already often have to step into the street to pass each other on the narrow pavements. One option might be to close the street to through traffic.

Did you know?

Cranham Street used to be a blot on the city

Before Grantham House was built, the site became notoriously derelict, making Cranham Street according to the local press a ‘blot on the city’ – wrecked by local children, and a refuge for rats and for ‘layabouts sleeping off the drink’ who were repeatedly evicted by the police.

The history of the Phoenix?

There has been a cinema here since 1913. Orginally it the ‘North Oxford Kinema’, since when it has passed through many hands and names, including the Scala, the New Scala, the Studios 1 and 2, Studio X (a club showing soft porn) and finally in 1977 the Phoenix.
