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.

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.

Why Juxon Street?

Juxon Street is named after William Juxon, President of St John’s College from 1621-33.
