Oxford Removal Company
Oxfordshire is a county on the western side of the South East region of England. It is a picturesque county; as well as having the historical city and county town of Oxford, its territory also spans three Areas of Outstanding National Beauty with the Cotswolds, the Chilterns and the South Wessex Downs. The River Thames is also found in Oxfordshire, and this forms the border with neighbouring Berkshire to the south. Other prominent settlements in the county besides Oxford include Abingdon, Banbury, Bicester, Chipping Norton and Henley-on-Thames. Removals.co.uk covers all these towns for house removals, storage and moving house.
Removal Company History
Historically, Oxfordshire’s main output and value has been in agriculture. Contrary to what some people may assume given its rich history, Oxford was actually ignored predominantly by the Romans. The town first attained a degree of prestige under King Henry II, who granted Oxford citizens the same privileges as those who lived in the capital. The University dates back to the 12th century and has played a key role in shaping and defining the city as it has grown in size and stature. Following the Industrial Revolution, the Oxford broadened its outputs and became a key car-manufacturing hub, which is still active today on a smaller scale.
A diverse range of well-known companies employ large numbers of Oxfordshire residents. These companies include Oxford University Press, a publishing company, BMW, the Co-op, Waitrose and Oxfam. Oxford on the whole is an affluent area and has one of the strong economies in the United Kingdom.
Property Market – Moving House
Oxford is one of the most expensive regions to move to in the country. The average house price is £432,565 according to Zoopla, and this is likely to rise further in the city of Oxford. So overall, a move to a house in Oxfordshire will cost you close to double the national average. There is a reason for the high prices though, and that reason is in most cases the Oxford countryside. With three Areas of Outstanding National Beauty, movers can take their pick of an idyllic rural location, some of which are so untouched that they are used as filming locations for period dramas (such as Downton Abbey).
Home Demographics – Removal Company stats
Oxfordshire’s population is estimated to be 682,400. Oxford is the largest settlement with a population of 154,600. The county as a whole has a relatively low degree of ethnic diversity, with 95% of the population being white British. This changes dramatically in the city of Oxford however, where the influx of students means that only two thirds of the population are white British, with a range of ethnic groups comprising the other third.
Oxford is truly rich in culture, both in terms of its traditional rural English way of life that can be experienced in its countryside towns and villages, and the prestigious world of academia seen in the city of Oxford. One must-see attraction is the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Blenheim Palace; it has over 2000 acres of land, and the audaciously designed building was the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill. An array of arts and festivals can be enjoyed year-round in Oxford, such as the ever-popular Henley Festival. Alternatively, for some gourmet food try one of the many pubs in the county, many of which pride themselves on the unique menus.
