Oxford: An Ever Expanding City - The Growth of Suburbia

Overview

In association with Oxford Preservation Trust.

The Annual Oxford Day School 2020, in partnership with Oxford Preservation Trust, will explore the past, present, and future of Oxford’s suburbs. At a time when the City is under pressure to develop we will look back to previous times of growth, pushing out at the edges towards the surrounding hills. We’ll consider their impact and how the places they have created have become established communities with their own history to tell.

Oxford Preservation Trust is a membership organisation which works to conserve and enhance Oxford while sharing and encouraging an interest in its history.
