Oxford Canal Heritage Project

The Oxford Canal Heritage Project is now well underway. Funded by the Heritage Lottery and managed by the Jericho Living Heritage Trust, the project aims to make the Oxford Canal a distinctive destination for local people and tourists alike. By June next year, there will be new Oxford Heritage Canal Trail, a new website, better signage, and lots more information available for all visitors.

Over the next few months a range of activities are planned that celebrate the canal including an art competition and a canal art festival. To make the project a success we need your help. Volunteers are already busy interviewing former boaters for an oral history archive, helping out at our community meetings, delivering leaflets and mapping the flora and fauna along the canal. We welcome your interest and contributions. To volunteer, get a our mailing list or have a discussion about the project please contact Maria Parsons, the Oxford Canal Heritage Project Manager on 07801 509993 or email
