Restoring Martyrs Memorial. Three Bishops gone, but not forgotten.
In 2001, Debbie Dance, relatively new in her Director post, was on her way to an OPT trustees meeting where they were to discuss marking OPTs 75th anniversary. Should they commission a piece of public art perhaps? As she passed the Martyrs Memorial, grey, unloved and behind hoardings a plan was hatched - here was a project waiting to happen, an iconic piece of Oxford’s heritage – why commission new when there was something existing that needed our help?
