Some history of Oxford
More information on Oxford to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to Oxford from another page. When building the site it is easier to place links as they crop up rather than go back later on. I realise this is frustrating if you were specifically looking for information on Oxford. When creating a page I do however post a few photographs and newspaper articles.
Have Your Say
If you would like to share any further information on Oxford - perhaps you drank in one of the pubs in the past? Or maybe knew a previous publican running one of the boozers? Whatever the reason it would be great to hear of your stories or gossip. Simply send a message and I will post it here.

"The sermon at Oxford by the Bishop of London on Sunday last, in which he alleged that a wave of drunkenness was passing over some of the
Oxford colleges, has aroused considerable feeling of a mixed kind among the heads of several of the colleges, some of whom declare that the Bishop's statements are
greatly exaggerated while others remain silent on the matter. The Master of Pembroke has stated that then undoubtedly need for improvement among the junior members of
the University, and is thankful to the Bishop for having spoken out on the subject. The President of Magdalen is of opinion that matters were no worse at present than
they had been, and that, compared with some years ago, there was even an improvement. The warden of Keble said there was room for improvement, but he did not think
that things were worse in Keble; while the Provost of Worcester declared that the Bishop's description was a revelation to him."
