This book presents the results of research by Stanley Baker (retired archivist) and Peter McWhirter (retired physicist) on the changes to the boundaries of the parishes of Radley and Sunningwell. It was largely inspired by their interest in old maps, of which many reproductions are included in the book. The book describes the evolution over the centuries of the bounds of these two neighbouring villages.
