Headington in a nutshell

Lady (Marcelle) Quinton on Headington shopping centre in her review of Michel's Cafe at 146 London Road (published in the Oxford Times in c.1983):

“Attlee's England”

From Guardian article on Oxford Brookes dated 2 July 2004:

“Headington is more residential and less twee [than Oxford]: it boasts a large park, a very famous shark, and plenty of pubs and shops along its main road; it is also very convenient for the bus to London”
