ABOUT JERICHO - STREETS

Streets

Jericho's streets, although mostly laid out at the end of the 19th century, were build by different landowners or developers, which is reflected in their individual character.

How did our roads get their names

Published - Oct 04 1983

Did you know?

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.

How religious we are?

In the 2001 Census, some 50% of Jericho residents said they were Christian, 2.2% Muslim, 1.9% Buddhist and 1.2% professed other religions, while 34% of people said they had no religion. In Oxford as a whole the proportion with no religion was 24%.
