Five Mile Drive, looking west
Five Mile Drive, looking west
Broad residential avenue running between the upper ends of Banbury and Woodstock Roads and lined with well-appointed houses standing in generous gardens. In earlier times it was known as Long Hedge and then Horsemonger Lane. Its present name derives from the fact that the circular route from the centre of Oxford, up one and down the other main northern thoroughfares, became known as 'The Five Mile' by walkers and riders who wanted to take the air without passing beyond the tollgates. The area was developed as a suburb in the 1930s when the name was officially given.
