The Port Meadow is an ancient grassland on the river floodplain, which has been grazed for centuries and never ploughed. It is a Scheduled National Monument and Site of Scientific Interest, and an environmental haven for the people of Oxford.

But the meadow's wide open views have now been damaged by Oxford City Council allowing Oxford University to build a row of massive blocks around the south-eastern perimeter. This has been likened to building a skyscraper next to Stonehenge, and campaigners are fighting to have the top storeys removed.
