Round the back



Yesterday I mentioned that you're never far from tranquility in Oxford. This photo is another example of this phenomenon. The centre of Oxford is full of little streets like this, rarely travelled, and invariably beautiful. Their omnipresence is testified by the fact that I'm unable to recall which of these streets this particular photo is taken on, although it's somewhere in the vicinity of St. Aldate's. Like a lot of these back streets, it has what I think of as a Narnia light fitting.

Looks familiar, I lived in St Aldates just about opposite the Old Sheep Shop for some years.

This is Brewer Street. I used to work down this road. That's part of the old city wall on the right.

I remember these streets. On a quiet night, you can almost hear the hoofbeats of Cromwell's army, echoing from the past.

That is Brewer street. That wall on the right is Pembroke College.
