In the carpark at the Trout Inn, Godstow. The city boundary runs through its premises

This stone is half buried today, but can be seen here in its entirety

Robert Buckell served his first term as Mayor of Oxford in 1885/6, and Francis Twining was his Sheriff

It matches exactly the following five stones, which are also dated 1886:

• Binsey

• Godstow

Port Meadow, near the carpark

Port Meadow, near Burgess Field

Marston Meadows 2

The city crest on the flat top of the stone is missing, and the hole is filled with cement
