Bicester: A Potted History covers the full history of the town, from the Roman settlement of Alchester that preceded it, through its Saxon, Tudor and Victorian developments, right up to the present day. Some of Bicester’s ancient history remains today. The parish church dedicated to the Saxon Saint Edburg has around 900 years of history, and a priory was also founded in the town in the twelfth century. In recent decades Bicester has seen many new housing developments and expansions, bringing new people to the town. The historic heart of Bicester has remained, but new developments around the edge of the town continue to expand its horizons.

Illustrated throughout, this accessible historic portrait of the transformation that Bicester has undergone through the ages will be of great interest to residents, visitors and all those with links to the town.
