Sandford Street Names

There are some 20 street names in the village,
as shown in the road map below:


From the north (Littlemore) the main road that runs through the village, passes four main junctions:
Starting as the Sandford Road, it passes the junction with Heyford Hill Lane, then crossing Northfield Brook it becomes the Henley Road; it then passes Rock Farm Lane; Church Road and finally Brick Kiln Lane, before it joins the main A4074 to the south.

Sandford Street Plan

Heyford Hill Lane
The northern area of the village was originally part of Littlemore Parish but joined Sandford in a boundary review in April 1991 (however the Post Office still address the area as part of Littlemore) continues through the estate, passing Batten Place, Janaway, Broadhurst Gardens, Buckler Place, Yeftly Drive, Pheasant Walk and Fox Furlong, and continues on under the old railway bridge and down to the pumping station, near the river (note that there is no public access to the river here).

Rock Farm Lane
this old lane, has a new development build on the old farm, behind The Fox pub (in 1994) has a section named after the old farmer, Keene Close.

Church Road
This is just passed, and opposite, The Fox which as the name suggests passes the Parish Church of St. Andrews. The road continues down to the river passing River View and Burra Close (named in 1987). The Kings Arms pub which over looks the river, has foot bridge access to Sandford Lock where you can watch the boats on the river. Church Road continues on in to the new Mill estate (built 1985) adjacent to the river.

Brick Kiln Lane
This runs under the A4074 and joins the end of Grenoble Road which leads on to The Science Park and the Kassam Stadium (which is part of Oxford City). Also there is access to the eastern part of the village, Ten Acre Park and Oxford Park Homes which is made up of Kiln Close, Main Avenue and The Crescent.
