Joanna InnesJoanna Innes is a historian, recently retired from Somerville College, who has lived in Iffley Fields for over 30 years. In the early months of 2020, in the exceptional circumstances of the pandemic, she “started exploring and reflecting on the open spaces around me in ways that I had never done before”. This stimulated the launch of the Life in the Flood Plain blog ( Joanna will be in conversation with Patrick McGuinness (author of the recent book “Real Oxford”) to reflect on what she learned and experienced in and around the Oxford floodplain.
