Oxford is the headquarters of Reeds Solicitors and offers the full range of our services.

The city is home to the University of Oxford, the oldest university in the English-speaking world, and has buildings in every style of English architecture from late Anglo-Saxon.

Oxford was first settled by the Anglo-Saxons and was initially known in Old English as Oxnaford. The name is a portmanteau of “oxen’s ford”, which literally meant oxen’s shallow river crossing. At Oxford, the Thames splits into many channels, offering a relatively shallow and hence crossable location for people, goods and animals. Oxford thus became a heavily trafficked crossing point and the early Anglo-Saxon settlement developed around the location.

It was at Oxford that in 1139 Geoffrey of Monmouth wrote his History of the Kings of Britain, a compilation of Arthurian legends.

The University of Oxford is first mentioned in 12th-century records. Of the hundreds of aularian houses that sprang up across the city, only St Edmund Hall (c. 1225) remains. What put an end to the halls was the emergence of colleges. Oxford’s earliest colleges were University College (1249), Balliol (1263) and Merton (1264).

The University of Oxford maintains the largest university library system in the United Kingdom, and, with over 11 million volumes housed on 120 miles (190 km) of shelving, the Bodleian group is the second-largest library in the United Kingdom, after the British Library.

Oxford is home to many museums, galleries and collections including the Ashmolean Museum, the University Museum of Natural History, the Pitt Rivers Museum, and the History of Science Museum.

Oxford’s industries include motor manufacturing, education, publishing, information technology and science. It is home to the city’s leading football club, Oxford United FC, who are currently in League One.
