Not sure if this will work? Just found this restaurant review today in the Guardian… It starts by wondering why it should have opened in such a place
“Are they lured by limestone, the only interesting thing that’s occurred in this postcode since the late Jurassic epoch?”
OH if only all that limestone could talk!
Could this be the next place to meet up?
Well done, Mary. Congrats on sterling efforts.
Some deaths to note : Dennis Sutherland, Ian Marsland & Robert Crockett (Jethro)
1963 – 1966 (One of the founder members)
Between 1870-1872, it was said the house had relics of Mary, Queen of Scots and Charles I, some other curiosities and some fine pictures. Sir Maurice and Lady Fitzgerald took over the property from the Throckmortons and lived there until his death in 1919 and hers in 1947. Visitors to the house during the Fitzgeralds’ tenure included Winston Churchill and Queen Mary, who had objets d’art stored in the basement during World War II. Buckland House then passed to Major Richard Wellesley, grandson of Lady Fitzgerald.
Awesome post! Keep up the great work! 🙂
How long did University Hall, Buckland exist? It started in 1963, I think. I was in the second intake in 1964. Is there any list of names in the second and third years. Jenny Treble has remembered a lot of names. I would like to meet up with some ex Buckland people.
Just checking the emails. Hello all! Do we want to use this place for a forum? to add thoughts and musings?
Is anyone interested in a 60th Anniversary reunion in Oxford in the summer of 2023? In answer to Mary McHugh’s last post on 31 October 2021 I think this is a perfect method of communicating at present
