CONDUIT FROM THE CARFAX, OXFORD

CONDUIT FROM THE CARFAX, OXFORD

The four cross roads at Oxford called Carfax became too congested with traffic, so the old conduit was removed in 1787 six miles to the park at Nuneham Courtney. The letters O.N. carved in the stonework stand for Otho Nicholson, who was treasurer to James I and paid for the erection of the conduit, 1610-17.
