William Morris, the textile designer, writer and socialist, visited the church when the vicar of the church of Burford was changing the wonderful floor. He started arguing with the vicar that he was destroying beautiful heritage. But he lost the argument and you can still see the ugly floor in the church. William Morris went back home and founded the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (1877).
