Of course, you can't ignore the larger stuff when you are in a new town.
So, here are some of the larger things that caught my eye in Oxford.
|The Bridge of Sighs|
|A couple "becalmed beneath the Bridge of Sighs"|
|The Four Candles with Nuffield College in the background|
|Inside Balliol College.|
|University Church of St. Mary the Virgin|
You could almost hear the history dripping from the stonework of Oxford. Remarkable place.
You can find more shots from around the world at Our World Tuesday

I just can't see 'Four Candles' written without thinking of Ronnie Barker. If you've never seen the sketch, it can be found here: - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3VkjDSxBVqw.

Super building StewartReplyDelete
Wonderful pictures of an amazing place ... I agree that you can almost hear the history .... and it awes me, especially since we grew up in that part of the 'new world' where even century old buildings are old and rare,ReplyDelete
Fantastic photos Stewart! A lot of history in these photos. Someday...ReplyDelete
