Herve (French/Mexican) ...
Me and Veronica inside the museum
After walking around the
Musuem of Oxford
we headed off to go for lunch.
We set off towards Carfax and this is
considered the centre of the city
The name Carfax
derives from the French "carrefour"
crossroads or quatre face "four face"
lets go to the top of
Carfax Tower is is all that remains of the 12th century St Martin's Church and is now
owned by the Oxford City Council.
It was the official City Church of Oxford, where the Mayor and Corporation were expected to worship, between c.1122 and 1896, when the main part of the church was demolished to make more room for traffic in the area.
In 1896, the City Church was moved to All Saints Church in the High Street.
