Visit to Oxford – Blue Badge guide

It is Oxford’s turn again after a successful visit to Cambridge in 2011. The visit will take place on a Saturday, so we hope some of our working members and those living in the country-side nearby will be able to join us.

The detailed programme is still under development but will for certain include a comprehensive guided tour through the historic centre of Oxford visiting some interesting places. It will end up in the lovely, recently restored, garden of the Rector’s Lodgings at Lincoln College where our members Henry (Rector of the College) and Deb Woudhuysen will be our hosts for teas and drinks. No doubt they would like to show us the beautiful Chapel of the College, built between 1629-1631, and bordering their garden. The Chapel contains some masterly designed glass windows by Abraham van Linge and his brother Bernard.

As the date of this event will be before the mailing of the Autumn newsletter, applications are now sought (via the enclosed application form or by email). Further details of the visit and the cost of attending will be provided to applicants when these are known. There will have to be a maximum number and in principle this event is for members only.
