Walking the Ridgeway: Year 2 – when I wasn’t walking!

By Sally Pudney on 28th June 2018

Yes, well, I didn’t walk all the time. Generally it was from about 9.30am to about 1.00pm. And then I went to find some lunch and do something else. And on two days I did something completely different. So here is a quick round up of the different things.

On Monday I went to Oxford: this is one of the windows in Christchurch Cathedral by Burne-Jones

On Tuesday afternoon I went to Basildon Park: these are some of Graham Sutherland’s cartoons for his tapestry of the figure of Christ in the new Coventry Cathedral. They were bought by Lord Iliffe who owned Basildon Park during the mid 20th century

On Wednesday I went to Kelmscott Manor, country home of William Morris: this is the Green Room.

On Friday afternoon I went to Cliveden: this is the Fountain of Love, near the entrance

And everywhere I went, there was the River Thames!

The Thames in Oxford

The Thames at Kelmscott

And the Thames at Cliveden

The only other place I went to was Wittenham Clumps. I’ll save that for tomorrow! 🙂
