  • This si s alovely decorative stone memorial to the Oxford Martyrs, built 80 years ago, it is now a grade 2 listed monument. The memorial stands on an island with MM church and is constantly surrounded...  more »
  • I must confess to my shame that I had no idea about the meaning of this monument and had to "google" first. It is really a pity but the monument in the middle of a main artery goes down a bit and should get more attention.

  • Why do martyr's memorials attract drinkers? I found this in Edinburgh and Canterbury too. It is a pity that it is not obvious which statue is which man.  more »

  • Important landmark in Oxford. Very close to the Ashmolean museum of art and archeology.
  • This is an incredible piece of history, sitting right in the middle of a modern-day high-traffic intersection. I highly recommend you check it out. The steps leading right up to the monument are great to sit and have lunch on (I have myself several times). The whole thing was "refurbished" in 2002 (I think), so all the carvings and such are very clear.
  • The best location for starting Oxford City Tour
  • Beautiful old monument symbolic of Oxford.
  • Very interesting but also very sad
