  • Walking along the Oxford Canal is a nice way to relax, the surroundings are varied and there is always something new to look at. 
  • Not really as impressive as the proper gown areas of Oxford but worth a quick detour (no more)..if nothing else to establish the Western extent of Oxford proper 
  • In the summer can walk are beautiful. Possibly. time to take a bite. Who has the time ...machen
