About 11 years

I've lived here in Oxford about 11 years, I'm very settled in my flat in the Wood Farm area, a very green location with local shops & regular buses, and in the Hospital district. Its very quiet here & I keep a bird house by my window because I love to see the birds about.

I'm not far from either City Centre, the road to London or the countryside, so it is a place that suits many moods. My daughters live in Oxford too & I see them often.

I love this City, & not being a native (born in Romford, Essex, England) I appreciate the wonderful architecture & old buildings we have here.

    Brilliant pages on a great university and the city it calls home.

    How sad, no Eugenia for over a year. Will those unfinished pages remain a tantalizing glimpse of what might have been?

    Your page on Oxford is extensive. I liked it very much. I went there recently, but was mainly looking for anything related to Tolkien. But thanks for your information on Oxford.

    Just a couple of corrections: 1. It's spelt Magdalen -- Magdalene is Cambridge 2. Magdalen Street is correctly pronounced the "normal" way. This is because it is named after St Mary Magdalen church, which should always be pronounced Mag-da-len.
