Oxford - larger stuff

Of course, you can't ignore the larger stuff when you are in a new town.

So, here are some of the larger things that caught my eye in Oxford.

Radcliffe Camera
Bodleian Library
The Bridge of Sighs
A couple "becalmed beneath the Bridge of Sighs"
The Four Candles with Nuffield College in the background
Inside Balliol College.
University Church of St. Mary the Virgin
You could almost hear the history dripping from the stonework of Oxford.  Remarkable place.

You can find more shots from around the world at Our World Tuesday.

I didn't sigh at the bridge.

Very familiar sights Stewart, and well photographed, we where there last year to see my Daughter pick up her Masters.
All the best, Gordon.

Yep, Stewart, you've further strengthened my resolve. I really must visit Oxford!

I just can't see 'Four Candles' written without thinking of Ronnie Barker. If you've never seen the sketch, it can be found here: - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3VkjDSxBVqw.

Best wishes - - Richard

Wonderful pictures of an amazing place ... I agree that you can almost hear the history .... and it awes me, especially since we grew up in that part of the 'new world' where even century old buildings are old and rare,
