It's alright, first time i heard the phrase'Townie or Gownie' The A420 in to Oxford is great if you want to play road kill bingo, never have i seen so many dead Rabbits, Deer, Pheasants, Badgers etc. Probably shot by the locals
    Good fishing in that canal

    Loads of people used to live in houseboats along there

    Some of them were very odd

    Some of the pubs by the football ground were a bit rough

    Like any town in the U.K. the high street and main town looks exactly the same.

    But if you do a bit of research before you go there are plenty of great restaurants and bars/pubs just a bit off the beaten track.

    One of the pubs by the old manor ground is called The Brittania, Oxford could muster up a handy little mob. The best place I stayed in was iffley, Roger bannister and all that. You could cut through to Cowley rd.

    Re: Oxford

    Moving south by about 50 miles I spent a long weekend in Winchester over last weeks bank holiday. What a gorgeous little city that is. Expensive in the pubs but that’s the norm everywhere these days. Not that I do much running but I went out Sunday morning and ran alongside the river and through Winchester Public school and Winchester Cathedral. I didn’t seem to notice I’d ran a bit further than normal purely due to the lovely sights in 5he city.

    My sister attended an Oxford college and when I visited her there always found the place to be atmospheric. However, 40 years on and the place seems to be as much a place for tourists as students.

    .I'm guessing you mean north of Cambridge Major?

    All the nice buildings , some posh suburbs but some less than squeaky clean areas

    Oxford East is one of the only labour seats in the south east of England outside of London

    Cowley , Blackbird Leys , Wood farm, all traditional working class districts

    I never used to go into Oxford City Centre at night , the locals ran the place

    The student area , cowley road was OK

    Look Sludge, just because your own sisters clearly despise you thereís no need to be jealous of the close knit community we have up here in the valleys. Someone from Cardiff once told me he was very envious of the camaraderie we enjoy.
