The Autumn Thames class explores the Thames from the "Foothills to the Sea" - Thanks Oxford Centre for arranging these great trips!
The Thames class visited the totally excellent London Wetlands Centre and did the "Wild Walk" through the marsh. This included crossing one pond using the only slightly submerged rope bridge. Perhaps the Wild Walk may be taken to be a practice run for the Wacky Walk they will all get to do some time in the not too distant future.
The Thames class visiting the source of the Thames. In the first picture, the class is standing on the Thames, whereas in the second, they are posed around the stone that marks the (now subterranean) stream that is supposed to be the start of mighty Father Thames/Mother Isis.
A visit to the source of the Thames, including the spring where it starts (marked) by the stone, and its plausible course early on. Unfortunately, the Thames must have been hiding underground today.
Early days in Oxford: Dining at Magdalen College
Some scenes from October Bing trips to London: (1) Standing on Airy's meridian at the Greenwich Observatory; (2) Dining at a gastropub (not a gastropod) in Pimlico.
Hello! I attended Stanford in Oxford for winter/spring 1998, and my husband Brian Free and I met there. We are on sabbatical in Europe and would love to take our kids back to the house where we started dating. (Not that they will care, but we do!) Who should I contact for permission to do this? We'll be there August 6 and 7.
This is Tes. He's one of our brilliant creative writing tutors here at Villiers Park, as well as lecturer for Stanford in Oxford and runs the literary group for The Gatehouse homeless charity in Oxford. So what drives him to share his passion for writing? And why at Villiers Park? https://www.villierspark.org.uk/our-journal/creative-writing
