London Road, Headington: number changes


Since 1889 London Road has officially started at the Boundary Brook, which separated Oxford city from Headington from 1889 to 1928. In 1930 Headington and the London Road came to an end at the boundary with the parish of Forest Hill.

London Road underwent a drastic renumbering in the early 1930s. The last column only includes the houses that were in existence in 1935, and matches the street numbering today.
