This year OBR will have no excursions, as we have not found a volunteer to act as excursions organiser. If you are interested in organising excursions please contact the secretary, who will be pleased to discuss it with you.

However, many of us are also members of the Oxfordshire Architectural and Historical Society (OAHS), which has tours on 21 May, 11 June, 16 July, 13 August and 8 September. See the OAHS program. These are restricted to OAHS members this year.
