Cycle ride to Radley College

November 21, 2017

Radley College
We went for a cycle ride and walk near Radley College on Sunday. We left the bikes near the Lodge Hill garage, then walked through the avenue of trees and then down towards the Radley College golf course. Most people we saw had dogs with them. This chap had a lot more than most.

Looking down towards Didcot Power Station there were also a lot of geese at Peachcroft Farm.

Our destination was the Womping Oak. It could have made an appearance in the Harry Potter books if Harry had gone to Radley College.

We walked back up through the avenues of trees,

passing the sign for quality Turkeys and Geese. Then back to Abingdon and a beautiful sunset looking down the Vineyard.

    It seems you may have met the Radley College beagle pack.

    Why does a school need a beagle pack?

    We struggle to get books, they struggle to get beagles. It’s just the way it is.

    It’s part of educating young gentlemen to be able to take up their station in life. Think of the Bullingdon Club. These things are necessary – nay, essential.

    At my school we queued for rice pudding. As Daniel says…

    Elsie is right. I am afraid we take Backstreeter’s photographic wizardry for granted.

    RIP Rodney Bewes. A regular visitor to Abingdon. We last saw him in the Broad Face on Swan Upping Day in July.

    Thanks for the memories.
