Pevsner guide to the buildings of Oxford and South-East Oxfordshire/AGM (followed by the Annual General Meeting)
Wednesday 27th March, 6pm followed by AGM at 7pm
The newly updated Pevsner guide addresses half a century of change and development since the previous edition, including a wealth of ambitious new buildings for the University of Oxford and its colleges. Familiar buildings such as the Bodleian Library and the Radcliffe Camera are reinterpreted, and the many renovations and extensions are described and assessed. Oxford’s commercial buildings, suburbs, and houses are also explored in depth, some for the first time. The county area extends from the outskirts of Oxford to Henley-on-Thames, following the historic Thameside boundary of Oxfordshire and taking in the hills of the southern Chilterns. Dr Simon Bradley, series editor of the Pevsner Architectural Guides and author or coauthor of four other Buildings of England volumes, will explain how this classic guide has been updated.
