Oxford Ghost Signs: Twining's grocer's shop at 294 Banbury Road

Twining House

The words TWINING and HOUSE are engraved on stones on each side of the front door of this shop at 294 Banbury Road. Francis Twining (1848–1929) lived in Summertown House just north of Apsley Road on the Banbury Road and opened this branch of his grocer’s shop chain here in Summertown in 1902.
