Summary Description

St. Aldate's is one of Oxford's oldest churches, first documented in the early C12 with archaeological evidence which has firmly established an ecclesiastical presence here by the late Saxon period. Over the medieval and early modern periods the church saw numerous alterations, although much evidence of these was removed in C19 restorations and re-orderings. The building includes a good deal of medieval fabric, and, a major parish church, it stands in a prominent town-centre position.
