The world-renowned city of Oxford, ‘the city of dreaming spires’, is situated where the river Cherwell flows into the Thames. Oxford has a population of 160,000 and is the county town of Oxfordshire.
Oxford University, first mentioned in the 12th century, is the oldest university in the English-speaking world. The university buildings cover a wide area near the centre of the city, from the older college quadrangles to more modern buildings like Nuffield College.
Oxford is also an industrial city, most notable as the manufacturing base for the Mini, now produced by BMW. Other industries include education, publishing and IT. There are notable buildings in Oxford from the late Saxon period to modern times. Near to the centre there is a lot of terraced and Victorian housing, with further pre- and post-war expansion in housing estates nearby.
This type of housing may be susceptible to rising damp, where damp proofing causes may not exist, or have failed. Older housing may also be at a higher risk to penetrating damp through blocked guttering, leading to potential structural problems and heat loss in your property. If you think you might have any problems please feel free to get in touch to book a survey by one of our trained professionals.
