Who Are We?
St Lawrence is the original parish church for the village of North Hinksey, standing close to the oxen ford that was the western route out of Oxford in medieval times. It is a medieval building of great simplicity and beauty. It was damaged during the civil war and has an important memorial to Thomas Willis who died in the siege of Oxford. St Lawrence is part of the North Hinksey with Botley Parish and is run by the North Hinksey with Botley Parochial Church Council.
