Marston has always been closely entwined with Headington, and this relationship has been strengthened now that the two areas come under the city council’s North-East Area Committee.
Material relating to both Old and New Marston is gradually being added to sections of this website. For instance, Marston’s churches, schools, councillors, places to eat, organizations, doctors, dentists, and chemists have been integrated with the Headington entries, and can be found under the standard links on each page.
Other items (too large to be integrated) can be found as separate pages linked under the standard side-links. To get to them quickly, simply click on the links below:
- Marston Shops (linked via “Shops/Businesses”)
- Marston Pubs (linked via “Food & Drink”)
- Marston Streets shown on Streetmap (linked via “Maps & Transport”)
- Marston History (including a tour of its finest buildings) (linked via “History”)
- Marston’s Family History (linked via “Family History”)
Help from people who live in Marston and/or know it well would be very much appreciated in all categories, but particularly in the History and Family History sections. Any texts supplied would be duly credited, and can be sent as Word attachments or in the body of an email: no knowledge of making web-pages is required.
Old photographs and postcards of Marston are also very welcome: arrangements can be made to scan them while you wait.
Also please feel free to amend or add to any of the existing pages. For instance, does anyone know who or what certain streets in Marston were named after?
