This is the 250th Anniversary of the passing of the Oxford Canal Act 1769 which created the enterprise that would build and manage the canal. Accounts vary slightly but the Nicholson map of the canal suggests that it is 69 miles long.

My project aims to document the canal as it is today at 1 mile intervals over the course of 2019. A variety of images, both documentary and ‘contemporary’, are being prepared and processed in different styles. The output will take shape as more images are produced.
