 Jericho originally lay at the heart of Oxford's industrial area along the Oxford Canal, and is therefore largely made up of terraces of workers' cottages.

The area features in Philip Pullman's Northern Lights as the home of the Gyptians. A passage in Jude the Obscure by Thomas Hardy also takes place in St Barnabus Church in Jericho.
