Oxford History: City Wall


North wall: South of Holywell

At the Turf Tavern

Before it reaches New College, the north-east town wall is visible at the Turf Tavern, which was erected just outside the wall in the eighteenth century, when land inside was scarce. It was originally known as the Spotted Cow.
