History of Oxford Street, London

Oxford St, London W1C, Regno Unito  


Looking around Oxford Street London busy and bustling famous shopping Street it's hard to believe that this area once just a little more like this green and leafy with the babbling brook and the river flowing nearby in fact that used to be two streams of water in this area Tyburn river which used to Cross Oxford Street here at Stratford and Tiber and Brooke the nearby Brook Street which is just south of Oxford Street is named after a tiger in Brick which used to be here the river has since been converted which means it's been diverted to stay underground that when building in the area called Gravesend Sikh centre has this little river flowing through it on a stone floor and the central claims that this it'll streamers a part of the old Thai Grand river because of the Tyburn river Tiber and Brooke and because the general area year was once known as the village of tiger in Oxford Street used to be known as tiger and roads that can the beagle x right up until the 17 hundreds and even to this day a few places nearby still retained that I bring them aside from the Tyburn river the areas Adam a notable feature was Tyburn tree and this plaque near me max where she's too many Catholics are there on time DST ends here because ever since the protestant reformation in England when Henry VIII declared himself to be the head of the church any Catholic men women or priests refused to change their beliefs and who are loud and vocal about their beliefs as it was not the king but the Pope was the head of the church with it to be committing treason and treason was punishable by death it's not a coincidence that the famous Speakers Corner is near here today Speakers Corner the place where every Sunday anyone can make a public speech on any subject be Fearless in the area became associated with the name Oxford around the early 1700s 21st Earl of Oxford but a lot of land and fields in this area and subsequently meaning Tyburn Road it's raining. Become Oxford Road and eventually it became Oxford
