Wheatley Village

Wheatley is a village just outside Oxford along the A40. The main London Road ran though the village until it was bypassed by a dual carriageway and then the M40 Motorway. I had scansion to visit a couple of times and took a few photo's while I was there

This is the mini roundabout at the west end of the village, going across it takes you to the Brooks university Sports grounds

This is the original London road or A40 

same road a bit further along

The parish church St Mary the Virgin 

and this is the main entrance to it

One of the Toads called Holloway Road
This interesting building along Church Street is the old Village Lockup

It sits in it's own are by the recreation ground

Further down Holloway road is the High Street

which also had an old postoffice now converted into a house

Just along High Street is the War memorial 
 That used to be at Magdalen College

 I think it looks better here as a memorial to those who gave their lives in the Two World Wars

This road is called Station Road and there is a pub called the Railway here. The Station was a little way further along but closed down in the 1960's and little of it is still around

The United Reformed Church at the bottom of High Street

I ended back on Church Street and walked along it till I passed this pub called the Sun

and went back along the High Street passing this place called Wheatley Manor, Its an old Tudor house

Further along is this place which looked like an old coaching in and was called the George

Tomas House dies there in 1577

 Last place I saw was this

The King & Queen.
Home you enjoyed the walk round Wheatley

  2. The King and Queen a pub? That is a pretty cute mini roundabout. Must be the smallest I've seen.

    Worth a Thousand Words

  3. Hi Bill,
    what a wonderful place with pretty Extra´s. Amazing !
    Best regards, Synnöve

  4. We are so fortunate in the UK to have history around every corner. That old lock up is fascinating. I've never seen one that shape. PS thanks for the info on the other VC hero as I didn't know that fact.

  5. That was lots of fun. Thanks for the tour.

  6. The village lockup intrigues me. I'm surprised to see a Reformed church there.
