Christ Church War Memorial Garden facts for kids
The war memorial garden, in memory of members of Christ Church, Oxford, is located east off St Aldate's at the western end of Broad Walk, which leads along the northern edge of Christ Church Meadows. To the north is Christ Church, one of the Oxford colleges, with a view of Tom Tower above its main entrance, also on St Aldate's.
Post Second World War development planned for central Oxford included a relief road passing through the northern edge of Christ Church Meadow along the route of Broad Walk and joining the district of St Ebbe's, via the location of the garden. The proposal was defeated after vigorous opposition.
