In Port Meadow, just to the north-west of Burgess Field.

 

Robert Buckell served his first term as Mayor of Oxford in 1885/6, and Francis Twining was his Sheriff

It matches exactly the following five stones, which are also dated 1886:

• Binsey

Port Meadow, near the carpark

Marston Meadows 2

Godstow

• The Trout Inn, Lower Wolvercote

It is however in better condition than the other matching stones, as the city coat of arms in relief at the top is intact.
