On Saturday 8th October I went on my second Scott Kelby’s Worldwide Photowalk in Oxford.The photo walk in Oxford was organised again by Brian Worley.
Just as last year I drove to the Park and Ride South of Oxford at Redbridge just off the A34. The bus dropped me off on the High Street and I walked up to Cornmarket Street. The pedestrian streets were busy as before and I stopped to watch this guy being heckled.
Before the Photowalk
I wandered around the covered market and eventually decided to have a sandwich from this stall.
Once in Radcliffe Square I walked to the Camera and sat on one of the window ledges and tried to count just how many photos I was in.
Big mistake wearing a bright red coat! I took a picture of the University Church from the window-sill and went to join Brian and the other early walkers.
The 2017 Oxford Photowalk
1. Start from Radcliffe Square and pass by the Radcliffe camera towards the Bodleian Library – the quad inside is quite interesting – but popular.
2. Pass by Hertford Bridge, also known as the “Bridge of Sighs” and go straight ahead up Park Street [ed.sic. Parks Road]
3. You will pass Wadham College on your right, and come to the Oxford Natural History Museum. Entrance to the museum is free, but you may end up spending a lot of time inside if you choose to go in. There’s some big footprints in the grass in front of the museum
I wonder how many toes a megalosaurus has? (Brian’s quiz)
4. Turn left off Park Road down Museum Lane, and keep heading straight on in to Lamb & Flag Passage
5. At the end of Lamb & Flag Passage, ahead of you on the other side of St Giles is the Eagle and Child pub. This has associations with the Inklings writers’ group which included J. R. R. Tolkien and C. S. Lewis
6. Turn left down St. Giles and pass by St. Johns College
