Unusually, this church is as wide as it is long - a testimony to the restricted space on this city site. The church has Norman origins, but was partly rebuilt in the Gothic 'decorated style' in the late 13th century when a new chancel, aisled nave and side chapel were added. It is one of the first examples of the Gothic revival in Oxford.
