ANNUAL EXPLORATION OF OXFORD – SAT 8TH JANUARY 2022

Hi Gang,

and a few "New Faces"

First apologies for late submitting (That Simon & Vas lumbered me with organising one of their walks and meals - at short notice - distracting my attention).

We keep away from rivers during January to March - have a habit of flooding when you don't want them too. So again our Andrew W took 10 of us exploring the "hidden gems" of OXFORD CITY.

Starting at the Railway Station we first encountered the former LMNS Railway "swing bridge" over the Oxford Canal - recently restored - one of only a few surviving.

Onwards we followed the Castle Mill Stream, into the Castle grounds before crossing into Westgate and the" City Wall" through Christchurch. Crossing High Street we explored Broad Street before coming to rest at "The Turl" were we had "outside lunch".

Onwards north through University Park's, Norham Gardens, North Parade and Radcliffe. Finally St Giles and "The Ashmolian".

I watched as Andrew disappeared down the "Sculpture Gallery" finding myself my first resting seat. Somehow most of us found our way to the top floor where we found Andrew already encamped, explaining the painting on display to our latest new member.

Again a delightful day spent with a "VERY knowledgeable member of our group"

Thanks again Andrew!!!

Bill
