View Headington at street level
Google’s special car with a camera on the roof toured Headington in the summer of 2008 (with Barton and Risinghurst added in 2009), and almost every street can now be seen on Google StreetView. Just go to http://maps.google.co.uk/maps and type in your post code. Then pull across the little orange person on the left to the area whose houses you want to see.
The links below show the shops in Headington District Shopping Centre: keep clicking the left and right arrows on the picture to view them all.
Bing Maps also offer an aerial view of Headington
Central Headington is now well represented on the Geograph British Isles website, for example with pictures of the shark and the new Baptist Church.
Other parts of Headington mapped with pictures are Barton (St Mary’s Church), Sandhills (Thornhill Park & Ride), Shotover (egg-rolling), Headington Hill (Cuckoo Lane), Marston (Vicky Arms), and the west side of Quarry (Rock Edge).
Other parts of Headington and Marston are still waiting for people to submit pictures; and it is always possible to add extra pictures to occupied squares.
