Abstract :
Oxford Archaeological Unit undertook an evaluation and building survey ahead of development at the former Nuffield Press premises, Oxford Road, Temple Cowley. This site was the original location of Temple Cowley Manor <17th-c., demolished 1957>, but it also contained a number of important post-medieval standing structures, including the Oxford Military College buildings (1876-96) designed by T. G. Jackson and H. G. W. Drinkwater and structures built by William Morris following his acquisition of the site for car production in 1912. While the Jackson buildings were to be retained in the development, several others, including one which incorporated the former north wall of the manor house, were to be demolished. Excavations and measured building survey were carried out on the manor house remains and a photographic record made of the standing structures. ;
