Astons First Blue Plaque

Astons History Project are pleased to announce that Oxfordshire Blue Plaque Trustees have agreed to the installation of a blue plaque celebrating the life of Sir Patrick Abercrombie,  who lived at the Red House on Moreton Road from 1945 until his death in 1957. 

Abercrombie was a leading authority on national UK planning matters and garden-city initiatives, and internationally recognised as a pioneer of town and country planning.  A huge thank you to Gavin and Anna Wood for engaging with the (very long) process!

The plaque ceremony will take place on July 13th 2023. More details nearer the time.
