Construction Work in Tom Quad
An access ramp for wheelchairs is being constructed in Tom Quad. This ramp, which is part of the essential work of improving the disabled access to Christ Church, should have been built before the Oxford Experience started but was delayed owing to the very bad weather.
There will be archaeological supervision during this work, as it is possible that the cobbled surface of the old St Frideswide’s Lane (shown arrowed in the sketch map) and even part of the tenement that fronted on to Fish Street (now St Aldates) may be revealed.
A viewing panel will be constructed in the hoarding to allow people to see the work taking place.
