The beautiful local church was built around 1868 by Thomas Combe, Printer to the University, with the support of his wife Martha. It was set up to serve the spiritual needs of the workers of the Oxford University Press and their families. Thomas and Martha were also patrons and friends of the arts, particularly the young artists known as the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. Visit the website at: www.sbarnabas.org.uk.
