A few months ago I took my son over the Oxford Brooks University which used to know as Oxford Polytec. I might add I had the privilege of seeing Lynyrd Skynyrd there only a short time before some were killed in the air crash. While my son was in the uni I went of to visit St Clements church not far away and on my way there & back I took a few photos.
Just across the road is the old entrance to Headington Hill Hall now part of Brooks University Campus
just along from the entrance you can see this bridge which crosses Headington Hill
II think it allowed the original owner of Headington Hill Hall private acess to his estate
Looking back towards the campus
Headdington Hill looking down to Oxford
and uphill towards the London Road
Above the gates leading to Headington Hill Park and on the left is St Clements Street names after the church which is along over to my right
I think the pillar above is the Old Oxfrord City Boundary beside Suth Park. On the right I took a walk back this way through the park where you can see in the distance some of the students off some place
Headington Hill Park
It's also quite popular with walkers and joggers like these two
Above one of the pointerd for a run and on the left a look up Headinton hill towards the bridge
Above is Headington Hill Hall wich was built for the Morrel family who were local brewers in Oxford (It was never a favorite of mine). I'm not sure what happened to the family but it ended up being owned by Oxford City Council and is now leased by Brooks University who hav etaken over a large part of the area. On the right is a sculpture on the campus
The campus and students hanging around
And the new university camupus sign. The building is under going some renivation at the moment and will open agan in the not too distant future though none of it is how I remember the place. Hope you liked the little walk round.
