Abstract

This is an historic building and archaeological assessment of the site and environs of the Grade II* Minchery Farm, Sandford on Thames, a remaining part of the medieval nunnery known as Littlemore Priory.The assessment has been undertaken for Oxford United in relation to the development of the adjacent site as an hotel. The archaeological potential of the site has been well established in the course of the development of adjacent sites for the Stadium and Leisure Centre, and can properly be dealt with in the same manner as those sites, and the site of the priory church avoided. The listed building is an important remnant of the medieval nunnery and post-medieval farmhouse, and has been relatively well preserved despite modern changes. No changes are currently intended to the listed building, and there are existing or blocked openings the historic structure that will allow it to be used with the new building. The setting of the building need not be damaged by a new building of appropriate design, and can be enhanced by careful landscaping of its surroundings.
