Long Wall Street

Long Wall Street (now more often spelt as Longwall Street) lies just outside the city wall, which survives at the end of the back gardens of the houses shown above. It can be viewed best from inside New College.

These group of six houses at Nos. 9–14 Long Wall Street have a modern building belonging to New College at each end (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 owns Nos. 1–8, and New College owns Nos. 9–20 and the former Morris Garage (notionally No. 21).
