Old photo of Oxton Church

Thanks to Craig Scothern who has sent a scan of an old postcard that he has had for over 40 years.

It is of Oxton church taken around 1920 at a guess by A J Loughton from Southwell.

The road looks slightly different now and the tree has gone.

There is also a scan of the reverse side and it does say ‘Oxton’ written by A J Loughton himself.

Craig was born and raised in Southwell and went to the Edward Cludd school. There is a memorial to Robert Scothorne, an ancestor, in the church.
