The Anchor Pub On Hayfield Road Has Closed?

In August I posted a photo of a pub on the Abingdon Road The Fox and Hound being pulled down to be replaced by a Tesco Metro! I mentioned that in Oxford we are loosing pubs everywhere and they are being replaced by either flats and apartments or Tesco's.  Now when I was out for a ride this afternoon I noticed this North Oxford pub, The Anchor has closed.  The pub sign has been removed and I am not sure what is happening to this pub?  Perhaps another Tesco's?

Hill End Education Centre

Hill End is an environmental activity centre for school aged children on the out skirts of Oxford.  I was surprised to read that the size of this centre is 62 acres and is a trust that the Oxford County Council have run since 1974.  More information on the Hill End can be found on website about what they do.  I was in the area today and out the front of the administration area the Hill End service Citroen was parked on a freshly mowed field, played around a little with this photo.

Early Morning Mist In Oxford

Was on my way to a meeting this morning when just on the outskirts of Oxford I drove into a patch on mist or was it fog I can never tell? It was only a small patch and out the other side it was a fabulous morning!  Good Morning everyone!

Oxford From South Parks

Camera up on a kite this afternoon while in South Park and managed to get a couple of nice shots of Oxford, this being one of the better ones.  Sorry about the string from the kite being in the photo, I think I will have to work on my technic.
