The Project

Over the last couple of years we have been developing plans with architects Miller Howard Workshop for a new Garden Room and Quaker Centre.

Here are some glimpses of what we hope to achieve. We need the support of our community, partner groups and grant funders to realise our ambition for simple and beautiful facilities to last 100 years.

We hope to be able to begin construction during 2020. More details will appear here throughout the coming months. If you want to be kept informed of developments and receive information on our programme of fundraising events and activities please email


June 2019: Planning Permission Granted! We are delighted that we now have the go ahead for the building and renovation project from Oxford City Council. Architects are developing technical drawings and final plans. These will go out to tender during the early Autumn hopefully for a start of building in April 2020.

February 2019: Digging for Treasure? Here’s our archaeological survey underway – no Quaker hoard found so we still need help to raise a further £300,000 to reach our budget of £600,000. Follow our progress here or contact our office for more information.
