Northcourt Cricket Ground

An excavation here, not far from the medieval barn at Northcourt (now Christ Church) produced two ditches and a few pieces of Late Saxon pottery, suggesting that the hamlet of Northcourt existed before the Norman Conquest. Northcourt is not mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, but this is probably because it formed part of Abingdon abbey’s large manor of Barton.
