Bodleian Libraries win Oxford Preservation Trust award

Bodleian Libraries win Oxford Preservation Trust award"The Bodleian Libraries have won a Small Projects award from the Oxford Preservation Trust (OPT) for the newly-replaced grotesques on the north-west wall of the Old Library. The nine badly eroded stone grotesques and associated stone work needed repair and replacement. The Bodleian Libraries in partnership with the University Estates Directorate and the OPT launched a competition, 'Millennium Myths and Monsters', inviting children to submit their ideas for replacement of the grotesques, because the originals had crumbled away over many years with no historical record of what they had once looked like"
