The City of Oxford is known as the “city of dreaming spires” and is home to the world famous Oxford University. It consists of 38 separate colleges which have produced many British Prime Ministers and is the oldest university in the English speaking world.
Christchurch College was used as a filming location for the Harry Potter films and Oxford itself has been the setting for the Inspector Morse and Lewis television series. You will also have seen the annual Oxford and Cambridge boat race on television.
Unsurprisingly Oxford is a popular destination for tourists who come to visit the University, shop at the character filled covered market and go punting on the River Thames.
If you live in Oxford you may well be an author as it is home to more published authors per square mile than any other place in Britain. These include past and present authors Phillip Pullman, Colin Dexter (Inspector Morse), C. S Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkien, Iris Murdoch, Oscar Wilde and Lewis Carroll. Oxford is also a popular live music venue for bands and has produced Radiohead and Supergrass among many others.
Much of the property in the centre of Oxford is owned by the University, however there are many locations around Oxford bearing the OX postcode such as Summertown, Jericho and Cumnor Hill that are popular residential areas to live.

If Dry Rot is detected it is extremely important to have it treated straight away as it will eat through timbers and building materials in your home and continue to spread until it’s stopped. It can cause severe structural damage to yours and adjoining neighbours’ properties and become a costly problem.
