River and canal

Oxford was formerly a major port on the River Thames, with this portion of the river known as the Isis; the Oxford-Burcot Commission sought to improve transportation to Oxford in the 17th century. Iffley and Osney locks are located within the city limits. The Oxford Canal was developed in the 18th century to connect Oxford with the Midlands. Commercial activity on the river and canal has given place to leisure use.
