JERICHO COMMUNITY CENTRE
To reach the Community Centre you should head for Walton Street which is just north-west of the city centre and then take one of the roads down through Jericho, such as Cranham Street or Great Clarendon Street. The Centre is a Victorian building on the corner of Canal Street and Cardigan Street - diagonally opposite St. Barnabas Church.
Why Juxon Street?
Juxon Street is named after William Juxon, President of St John’s College from 1621-33.
Why Jericho still has such a mix of houses?
Jericho’s intriguing mix of housing today owes a lot, to the Residents’ Association in the 1960s and 1970s which together with the then Vicar and some local councillors resisted plans to bulldoze the whole area and turn it over to offices and light industrial use.
