Armorial Crest

The armorial crest at the side of the page is that of Alderman William Fletcher, of Oxford, one of Yarnton's outstanding benefactors. He built the Clerk's House on the corner of Church Lane. This was Yarnton's first School House and our modern primary school is named after him. He endowed the church with many valuable works of art. The chief parish charities were founded and endowed by the Alderman and other members of his family.
