Oxford Inscriptions: Turn Again Lane

Turn Again Lane

8, 9 & 10

In 1971 Oxford Preservation
Trust purchased these three
listed seventeenth-century
houses to save them from
demolition. The restored houses
received a Civic Trust European
Architectural Heritage Year
Award in 1975.

The old name for this lane was revived in 1972, after it had been known as Charles Street for many years.

The three houses at 8, 9, & 10 Turn Again Lane that were saved from the city council’s demolition plans are on the left in the picture below. The office of the Oxford Preservation Trust is now at No. 10.
