"Christchurch meadow" Christ Church Meadow Tip by jo104

Christ Church Meadow, Oxford: 5 reviews and 7 photos


We walked through here to get to Christchurch and Follys Bridge, we were by the Botanical Gardens. The walk turned out to be really pleasent walking past some well maintained grounds and down a path leading to the river. We met an elderly woman who said she used to be a professor there and she was drawing the trees on a massive piece of paper which gets reduced down & she turns them into poetry books and cards. She was a very interesting person to chat to & her love for the enviroment was evident so we bought a card from her.

Do note the closing time is 9pm as I think a vt'er whose pages I read said she got stuck in the gardens although I am not sure it was this particular one.
