Event description

Description

Local historian Liz Woolley tells the fascinating story of how Enclosure in 1853 led to the rapid development of farmland south east of Magdalen Bridge. Within 50 years, 2,500 homes had been built, attracting college servants, skilled artisans, labourers and “the ignorant and rambling poor”. These events laid the foundations of today’s thriving East Oxford.
