Long Wall Street

Long Wall Street (now more often spelt as Longwall Street) lies just outside the city wall, which can be seen to the west inside New College.

The above photograph shows the six houses at Nos. 9–14 Long Wall Street, abutted on each side by modern buildings belonging to New College (Bodicote House to the left, and the Sacher Building to the right). All the houses of Long Wall Street are now college buildings: Magdalen College has Nos. 1–8, and New College Nos. 9–20.
