Not the Woodstock made famous by rock festival back in the 1969 but the town in Oxfordshire. I visited the church there and found  service going on so had a look around nearby.

The church with the War Memorial

Town hall

The town hall stands between two roads

From the town hall you look up this road

Opposite the church are the town stocks. this type is quite common to see in towns though luckily not used now unless for charity

Which is in front of the county museum

I did have a look around and found it very interesting and took  this photo of a mammoth jaw, I have a mammoth tooth and now know how it sits in a jaw

This is an Roman Headstone, it's the oldest headstone I have seen

Outside in the grounds is the Soldiers of Oxfordshire Museum which I intend to visit another time

Back to the stocks, they provide a seat for you though I doubt it was there for the poor soul who was interred in them 
Take care


  1. No that doesn't look like the Woodstock from the days of my youth. It pre-dates those days by a good deal!

  2. Interesting tour of the village.

  3. That looks like a lovely little town. The mammoth jaw is particularly interesting!
