TQ0582 : Cowley: Church of St Laurence

Cowley: Church of St Laurence
Cowley: Church of St Laurence
This attractive little church is on the east side of Church Road and at the eastern extremity of Cowley. Apart from the fact that Roman remains were found here in 1959 I can find no other information about the church on the internet. From a cartographical point of view this is a fine illustration of the relative inaccuracies of the Ordnance Survey 1:50,000 scale mapping. This shows the symbol for a church with a steeple clearly in the adjacent grid square TQ0682, but using the more accurate 1:10,000 scale mapping the church is clearly mainly in this grid square.

This was an unplanned and inadvertent copy of a Francis Frith image of around 1955, here LinkExternal link
