Churches in Headington.
 

Ahmadiyya Muslim Association, on Cowley Road. SP 533 054. Mehmood Naqshbandi, and reproduced from his website Muslims in Britain.

The former church of All Saints on High Street. On a medieval site, the present building dates from a re-build of 1707-8, necessitated by the collapse of the spire in 1700. Deconsecrated in 1971, it had been the city church since 1896, and now serves as the library for Lincoln College. Two additional views - 1, 2. SP 515 062. All Howard Richter (2016). Another view, Christopher Skottowe (2009). Link, from which we learn that the first church on the site, soon after the Norman Conquest, was probably converted from domestic buildings. Grade I listed.

Church and House of The Divine Love (Unitarian), 27 Percy Street. unitarian.co.uk. This, and many other old engravings on this website, are reproduced from the downloadable books on the Unitarian Church Headquarters website here.

Jones M.A, (Oxon), and the images are reproduced by kind permission of James Barry of Unitarian Church Headquarters. My appreciation also to Mike Berrell for his efforts in this regard.

Of the ancient church of St. Martin at Carfax, only the tower remains. A plaque gives a brief history. The grade II listing suggests that there may be a Saxon element in the largely C14 tower. It was restored in 1896; the body of the church was demolished at the same time. The view from the tower shows All Saints, with St. Mary the Virgin behind. SP 5131 0618. All Martin Richter (2012). Link. The tower is mentioned here on Wikipedia. An excellent article here, with photographs, and engravings of the demolished church, and its predecessor.

The splendid St. Mary at Iffley. SP 527 035. From an old postcard in Steve Bulman's Collection. Previously in the Unknown section, this photo is from Peter Langmaid's Collection. There appear to be some metal frames over some of the nearby graves, which Peter suggests may be body-snatcher deterrents. It was identified by John R. Parker. Link1 - the architecture page is useful too. Link2. The surprisingly short Grade I listing.
