With additional notes on a "lost" watermill at Cuddesdon and important input from Ivan Wright on an ancient track from Headington to Horspath, which may just turn out to be a branch of the main Roman Road through East Oxfordshire.
The current document is a draft dated January 2019. Revised editions of this document will be posted here.
