Braziers Park is a community, a residential college and an architectural treasure hidden deep in the south Oxfordshire countryside in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It was founded in 1950 as an educational trust, and is a continuing experiment in the advantages and problems of living in a group. Community members share responsibility for running the mansion house (a Grade II* listed building), 55 acres of land, organic kitchen garden and livestock, facilitating courses and organising events assisted by visiting volunteers from around the world.
We are an intentional community and we host a variety of weekend courses and accept volunteers throughout the year. Since 1950 we have explored the ideas of Norman Glaister, seeking to “make more conscious in ourselves the process of which we are a part”. Braziers Park consists of a large, characterful old house, sundry shabby out-buildings, a walled garden, two oxen, a stray cat, some goats & dogs, and a gaggle of people, in a scenically beautiful part of the country.
