This is now Huffkins Bakery in Witney Oxfordshire (home of the delicious lardy cake which I can’t get up here….. excuse me a sec. while I stockpile for the freezer). Erm look at the gorgeous ironwork -when I was little this was the ironmongery where all manner of ironwork could be commissioned as well as buying nails etc. The pillars were a source of fascination for me as a child- so ornate and beautiful.
We leave Witney via Corn Street
At Eynsham there is still a toll bridge – a relic from the 1760s when people had to pay money to use a section of road according to what vehicle they had.
It is a very busy road for only a B class as the A roads into Oxford are so congested. We wont go quite that far though.
Welcome to North Hinksey a village to the west of Oxford. You can walk or cycle into Oxford from it.
Here is the first of my Oxfordshire fishes “The Fishes.”
It has a large garden to the rear. Feel free to order at the bar- the food is great.
Now let us go down into the garden.
and take the little path which was mentioned in the link.
The large streams are murky after the rainy weather.
The path leads to Ferry Hinksey Road in Oxford.
It’s so nice to be close to nature while not far from a city.
My camera drank in all the sights.
St Laurence’s Church. Another blogger has been inside.
I had a little case of porch envy on the way back to the car.
Just so this isn’t all travels, this is a sneak peak of what I am working on now I have some time. The little lad is called Archie. He is staying with us until May. He is learning a lot from the hounds as well as us. At 8 1/2 he is a sprightly chap but very mischievious!
