Did you know?

Why Hart Street?

Hart Street was named after the Printer to the University 1883-1915.

The origins of Walton?

Walton is derived from “wall town” which was used centuries ago to indicate a location outside the Oxford city walls. The ancient manor of Walton was certainly in existence before the Norman conquest in 1066.
