Leicester Unitarians
Oxford, "the city of dreaming spires" - visit 2009

Christ Church College

On Saturday May 2, Sir Peter procured and drove our mini-bus, taking 17 of us to “the city of dreaming spires”, where we were joined by members of Annie's family.

On arrival and, following refreshments, we were given a guided tour
of Harris Manchester College by the Principal, Rev Dr Ralph Waller.

Harris Manchester College.

In the adfternoon we had a change of location, over to Christ Church College, where Annie's brother Chris is at present a Custodian.

Chris gave an extremely informative tour of the quads, the dining hall (with all its Lewis Carroll association), the Cathedral Garden where the massive and ancient plane tree grows which is supposed to be the inspiration behind Carroll's “Jabberwocky”, and the Cathedral itself for Sung Evensong—a most evocative ending to a thoroughly enjoyable day.
