  • I knew Murcott Methodist Church, which is built on the eastern edge of the hamlet quite well until it closed and will in due course post some photos of the interior. It is in the Anglican Ecclesiastical Parish of Charlton on Otmoor and the Methodist cause even in the hamlets in late 19th century caused the Anglicans to get worried about there being too many non-conformists. The rector decided to erect a Mission Room in the middle of the hamlet in 1895 but due to the well-known lovely Methodist Local Preacher Peggy North living opposite in Murcott House when the Methodist Chapel closed the Oxford Methodist Circuit came to an arrangement to use the Mission Room although I think the congregation was “gathered” mainly from elsewhere. More to follow!
