One of the special characteristics of Oxford is the ‘villages within the town’ which have survived within the City’s boundaries. There can be no better example than Old Iffley Village, where Cowley, Donnington and Rose Hill sit close upon its heel and yet it retains its rural charm and character. The Grade I listed church of St Mary the Virgin, with its decorated Norman Arch and modern stained glass Nativity window by John Piper is a constant joy adding to the village street scene and its proximity to the River Thames adds to its character. The surviving thatched cottages and stone walls ensure that Iffley Village retains its rural feel.
