This was a trip I did with my wife a while ago. We decided to go to the Ashmolean Museum to see the TutAnkhAmun Exhibition that was on. So I took a few photos of the day.
I took the train (Oxford is not nice to motorists) and when you get off you see this building names after Maggy Thatcher
Right opposite you can see the Oxford Bull
and lots of bikes parked in the bike park
This is the Ashmolean Museum, not easy to photograph with a compact
The Main entrance and banner and this is as much as you will see of Exhibition as they did not allow photos of it though you can take as many as you like in the museum.
Not sure of this building but it's one of the collages
Not far from the above building if you look on one of the wall pillars you can see this plaque. Oxford was a Kingly place
The Martyrs memorial
A blue plaque telling you about the forming of the Oxfordshire Yeomanry
Its on the wall of this alley which takes you to a former watering hole of mine. I remember it as the Corn Dolly it's now the Cellar Bar
This sign is outside Count Hall in Oxford and is one of the original cross road ones and below you can see an Old Milestone from near Banbury
This used to be the crown court as behind was Oxford Prison
and this was part of the prison, now its an hotel where you can stay
More of the prison which dates back to the 1700's
Empress Matilda managed to escape from the place while it was under siege
The Quaking Bridge you can read the history about it in the link and see another of my photo's
A sad place to me as it is the Old Lion Brewery in St Thomas Street Oxford which was where Morrels beer was brewed. It ended being sold to Green king who I have no good words for. Morrels beer was bad but it deserved better than being sold off to Green king
The Jam Factory which got its name from Frank Cooper who used to make marmalade here. It ended being a short day looking round as we found the exhibition was not really that good and when we went off to get breakfast the restaurant was closed for staff training.
Well thats it for this year with Our World Tuesday for me and no appologies if you check the links and see a few more of my phtos on Wikipedia. I'll be back next year with another tour maybe of Oxford maybe another place but in the mean time have a great Christmas & New Year
