It is located on the footpath between 1George Street OX26 2EB & The Bicester School. The path that runs from George Street to Kings end. It's the lamp closest to George Street end. It's hazardous as the footpath is very uneven and injury is likely to occur in the dark.

  • This light has still not been fixed almost two months. Not only is it a trip hazzard it is a place where muggings could take place due to the darkness

  • Going by your map I would guess that it is 004 although that is showing as the far end of my garden and the light is closer to the house end of the footpath. It's still broken and I am not sure what relevance your attendance 1 year ago is to how things are now, unless you put an incorrect year. Thank you
