Early 19th Century. Note the parallel Coventry and Oxford canals running from Hawkesbury Stop (Now Sutton Stop/Hawkesbury Junction) to Longford.  Note also the forgotten place names of  Witches Green & Bass Ford, the latter commemorated only by the residential road Basford Brook Drive nowadays. At top, no sign of Blackhorse Road which was at that time known as Pepper Green Lane.
