SP5107 : The Terrace, Park Town, North Oxford

taken 1 year ago, near to Marston, Oxfordshire, Great Britain

The Terrace, Park Town, North Oxford
The Terrace, Park Town, North Oxford
At the east end of Park Town, a small garden the shape of a flattened semi-circle is faced by a crescent of Regency-style houses; a path cuts through the garden and aligns with an arch at a break in the crescent. Beyond the arch lies a public footpath along the back of the buildings, part of a cycle route from the town centre to North Oxford.
As the date over the arch indicates, The Terrace (the crescent of buildings) dates from 1855.
Park Town, Oxford
Park Town is a small enclave of Regency-style villas and terraces that looks a little like a piece of Bath dropped into the middle of the predominantly Gothic-revival villas of North Oxford.
