Rowles Close

Rowles Close street sign

Once again a Sixties development but this one was eventually named after an individual who was very active in the local community Herbert Spencer Rowles, his main interests being the Village Hall and the Horticultural Society. The developer first suggested Iffley View; Abbots Place was also considered but perhaps most amusing was another name put forward, Coathanger Close because it was the site of a coathanger factory!
