Jericho is the area west of [Walton Street]?, east of the Oxford Canal, south of Juxon Street and north of Worcester place.

The area had been home to iron and brass foundries, the Oxford Canal and the Oxford University Press but Jericho was extensively rebuilt between 1870 and 1940 when tennements and buildings dating from the industrial revolution were demolished.
