Connecting you in Oxford

Our annual Corporate Membership isn’t like any other. We are an independent charity with Oxford at its heart, and the city would look very different without us. Since 1927 we’ve restored and conserved when others may overlook.  We take under our wing those quirky hidden gems which form the important layers of history which make up our great city. We look after 1,000 acres of land around Oxford so that we can protect the world-famous view of the dreaming spires. We are a significant force in planning and major projects which affect Oxford and its setting. Currently, we are very involved with the proposed Flood Alleviation Scheme and in research into the Oxford Views as pressure increases to build tall buildings within the Oxford skyline.

We are a charity and without our members, we couldn’t undertake this vital work to keep Oxford the mighty city that it is.
