Entries to the OXFORD PRESERVATION TRUST AWARDS 2015 are now open

Now in their 38th year the Oxford Preservation Trust Awards continue to go from strength to strength and celebrate those projects that make our City thrive . This is our chance to recognise the contribution of others and for everyone to share with others the conservation projects, new buildings, and landscape projects, large or small, which are adding to Oxford and its setting.  So, whether you are an owner, architect or just have a favourite project we would like to hear from you.

The deadline for applications is the 29 May 2015 and an entry form can be found at http://www.oxfordpreservation.org.uk/planning/awards.php

 

Have you got your Oxford Heritage Walk books?

Written by renowned local historian Malcolm Graham and illustrated by former city council conservation officer Edith Gollnast, Book 1 and 2 aptures the ‘hidden history’ of Oxford – looking beyond the usual, delving behind the facades, and seeing the familiar in a new way.
