This weekend we went into Woodstock. Rosemary felt we had not been there for some years. Checkout out some expensive antique shops, you can tell where the market is aimed at when you see the newsagent selling the Herald Tribune.
Afterwards into Oxford to sit in traffic jams for a long time. Looking for more second hand shops, which we never found.
After visiting Woodstock and Oxford, we drove home across country. As we passed the National Trust Boarstall Tower we saw it was open. This is a superb gatehouse to Boarstall House, which was demolished in 1778. The owner had decided the house was evil. The tower is rented out to a tenant for over £4,500 a month, but is available for guided tours on Saturday. The tower is bounded by a moat on three sides. The fourth side had been filled in many years before.
