The Oxford College Barges: Their History, Architecture and Use

Be the first to review this product

Ornate wooden college barges were a unique and distinctive feature of the Thames at Oxford. Today only a few of these old barges survive, and none on the original moorings. Clare Sheriff has researched their history from eighteenth-century, retired City of London Livery Company barges to Victorian and Edwardian architect-designed, floating club houses and changing rooms. Through a mixture of amusing anecdotes, rare photographs and detailed research, Sheriff has produced the first authoritative account of these highly decorative vessels, which will be remembered with affection by all those Oxonians and visitors to the banks of the Isis before the last of the barges was towed away in the 1970s.
