Dealer Notes
The Gardens of Oxford Colleges illustrated by Estella Canziani.

Early maps of Oxford show that the city was filled with green space. Substantial gardens persisted in the very centre of Oxford right up until the early 19th century. In a number of cases there was evidently a productive garden attached to a medieval academical hall.

Most colleges consist of one, two or three quadrangles, the front quadrangle often the oldest and slightly smaller. The transition from quad to quad is one of the greatest joys of Oxford’s college gardens.
