Once I was a clever boy learning the arts of Oxford... is a quotation from the verses written by Bishop Richard Fleming (c.1385-1431) for his tomb in Lincoln Cathedral. Fleming, the founder of Lincoln College in Oxford, is the subject of my research for a D. Phil., and, like me, a son of the West Riding. I have remarked in the past that I have a deeply meaningful on-going relationship with a dead fifteenth century bishop... it was Fleming who, in effect, enabled me to come to Oxford and to learn its arts, and for that I am immensely grateful.

Oxford Oratory appeal - the next stages begin

The two latest posts on the Oxford Oratory Appeal website New Building to start soon and Over £2m raised! More restoration in Church! indicate how far matters have progressed and what we areto expect.

For those of you who have not looked at the site lately, or indeed, before, I recommend giving it a glance and looking back over other recent posts there to see how progress is being made and the work that has been put in to make things happen.
