St Martin’s Tower, popularly called “Carfax Tower”, is on the northwest corner of Carfax. The tower is all that remains of the 12th-century St Martin’s Church, once the official city church of Oxford between about 1122 and 1896. The tower is 74 feet tall and no building in central Oxford may be built higher than it!
