Church
“Christ Church, one of the largest of Oxford's colleges, was founded in 1525 by Cardinal Wolsey and re-founded after his fall by Henry VIII. Tom Tower, added by Christopher Wren in 1682, contains a huge seven-ton bell known as Great Tom, which peals 101 times every evening at 9:05pm (once for each member of the original college). The main quadrangle, with its charming fountain is known as Tom Quad and is the largest courtyard in Oxford. The lower tower, with its fine staircase and fan vaulting, leads up to the hall, an elegant dining room with a magnificent wooden ceiling completed in 1529. Portraits of Henry VIII and distinguished members of the college - including William Penn, founder of Pennsylvania - adorn the walls. Beyond the Deanery (Charles I lived here from 1642 to 1646) is Kill-Canon, a passage so chilly that it was feared canons would catch their death of cold. Kill-Canon leads to Peckwater Quad, with its library containing drawings and mementos of Cardinal Wolsey. Art lovers will also want to visit Christ Church Picture Gallery, home to an important collection of 300 Old Masters and 2,000 drawings.”

“Take a walk along St Andrew's Road past the church and up Old High Street to get a flavour of the once rural village of old Headington, set outside Oxford on surrounding rising ground. You will pass the plaque marking the former home of Sir Isaiah Berlin, Historian of Ideas.”

“This pretty Anglican church is located at the intersections of Magdalen Street, Broad Street, George Street, and Cornmarket Street. A Saxon wooden church stood here a thousand years ago, but this was burnt down in 1074. Robert d'Oilli, the Norman Constable of Oxford, built a single aisle chapel to replace the wooden church. St Hugh, the Bishop of Lincoln, rebuilt the church in 1194. Following the Reformation, the church's patronage passed from St Frideswide's to Christ Church. In 1841–42, George Gilbert Scott, then young and unknown, rebuilt the chancel and the north aisle. This complemented his Martyrs' Memorial just to the north of the church. It was the first Victorian Gothic interior in Oxford.”

“St Mary the Virgin is the Church of England parish church of Iffley village. It is a small Romanesque church of great beauty and peacefulness, built about 1160 AD. It is a Grade 1 Listed Building of Historic England, meaning it is of major architectural importance. The oldest of the six bells in the bell tower was cast in 1592, while Shakespeare was working on Richard III. The huge yew tree that grows at the south side of the church is reckoned to be about 1600 years old, the oldest tree in Oxford.”

“Its a really beautiful church. Thomas Hardy's novel Jude the Obscure has a scene set in St Barnabas Church, and it is possible that the suburb named 'Beersheba' in the novel is based on Jericho.[14] As an homage to Hardy, in 1996, one of Jericho's pubs was renamed Jude the Obscure.”
