SP5105 : St. Aldates

taken 9 years ago, near to Oxford, Oxfordshire, Great Britain

St. Aldates
St. Aldates
The southern end of St. Aldates always seems much quieter than the northern end. Already, on Shakespeare's Way, we are feeling as if we are leaving Oxford. Looking back, Tom Tower above Christchurch is still prominent, but as this was designed by Sir Christopher Wren in the 1680s, Shakespeare would not have recognised this, or indeed any of the other buildings.
Shakespeare's Way

Shakespeare's Way is a 146 mile long distance footpath from Shakespeare's birthplace in Stratford-upon-Avon to the Globe theatre in London. It follows as nearly as possible a route that Shakespeare may have taken between the two, but using footpaths, quiet lanes and towpaths, rather than his tracks, which are today's main roads.
