Grade II; 14thC; Church (St Martin Carfax) demolished 1896. OS lists Bolt - destroyed July 1991; Centre; and Vane - good. 2.50 to walk up to the top, probably worth it for the views.

Spotted this while on a day out in Oxford with family and also doing a few sneaky Sighters. There was a few nearby this tower.

In Oxford for work, passed by on way to station. It's also quite interesting from the roof top view point. All that remains of St Martins church, rest lost to road widening. My local skyline tour guide said that no building in central Oxford can be built taller than this one (23m).

Note there is also a bolt listed as destroyed 7/91. It would now be under the boarding round the edge of the tower.

Note the centre of the tower, which is coincident with the vane, is a component of the station. There is an OS cut mark benchmark at the base of the tower http://www.bench-marks.org.uk/bm24318 and a cancelled one http://www.bench-marks.org.uk/bm24919 next to it.
