Blue Plaque


Friday I took a little trip to Marston near Oxford as I happened to be nearby. I wanted to visit a church for My Grave Place Blog but I passed the road it was in and stopped to turn round near this house which had a Blue Plaque on the wall. Seemed it was quite an historic place.

 Seems the Civil War  affected even a small village near Oxford and it went down in history where Oxford was surrendered.
