Oxford

It was a perfect day to walk round Oxford.   The colleges were closed.   The streets were empty.   We walked down Brasenose Lane, past the walled gardens of Exeter.   The sun was shining on the Radcliffe Camera and the west wall of the Codrington, with Hawksmoor’s gothic towers for All Souls beyond:-

The Clarendon Building looked noble, part of Hawksmoor’s plans for the reconstruction of the whole of the centre of Oxford:-

And the Sheldonian, one of Wren’s earliest and most programmatic buildings:-

We peeked through the railings at the gardens of Trinity:-

Admired the Pitt Rivers:-

And had lunch in the roof-top restaurant of the Ashmolean.
