Medieval Oxford

Pre-application heritage assessment and advice for the redevelopment of two housing sites at Oxford Castle and Osney.

Beyond Oxford’s central colleges survive important medieval streets and archaeology. Authentic Futures prepared heritage advice for two post-war housing sites where redevelopment was proposed. The first, a former hostel directly abutting the castle walls (a Scheduled Monument) and the second for an archaeologically rich site developed with social housing on Oxford’s water meadows. The historic research provided a deep understanding of the evolution of the two sites and their potential.
