After breakfast Max The Dog, Stuart, and I are all chomping at the bit to get out of the kitchen, leave the bacon infused air behind, and get out into the fresh morning air for a walk. With aprons put away and guests settled in for the day, the leash comes out, the jackets are put on, and the three of us head east down Holywell Street.
We stop to say hello to our neighbours and admire the pansies they've put out, beautiful against the backdrop of their stone cottage.
Max impatiently pulls us on down the street, past No. 99, JRR Tolkien's home in the 1940's and early '50's.
At the end of Holywell Street, we turn left onto Longwall Street, toward Holywell Manor.
|Longwall Street ~ The brick garage on the right is the old Morris Garage, |
where the first Morris car was built; the wall to the left encloses
the grounds of Magdalen College.
We follow St. Cross Road, down past Jowett Walk, and cross the street at St. Cross Church where the wedding of Dorothy L. Sayers' character, Lord Peter Wimsey, took place.
|St. Cross Church now holds|
archives for Balliol College.
