Merton Street houses and their former residents
Merton Street houses and their former residents
Looking west along this ancient cobbled street that runs parallel with The High, the house in the foreground is Postmasters' Hall, with a blue plaque to commemorate its illustrious lifelong resident Anthony Wood (1632-1695), historian and antiquary. Aged 5, while playing in the street outside, the young Anthony was run over by a passing horse (named Mutton) which belonged to the university carrier, suffered bruising and some longer lasting effects but fortunately taking no permanent toll upon his intellect.

Further along, the car is standing outside Beam Hall, the home from 1657 to 1667 of Thomas Willis, the founder of clinical neuroscience. William Harvey, who discovered blood circulation, was another contemporary neighbour of Willis for a short period.
