Oxford Jubilee Walk: Supporting SeeSaw May 25th

Oxford Jubilee Walk: Supporting SeeSaw May 25th

Regular price £0.00 £10.00 Sale

Beautiful City & Countryside!

Connecting an ancient city with its stunning surrounding countryside, this walk starts along the river and climbs gradually up Boars Hill to enjoy the vision of the city's 'dreaming spires' made famous by Matthew Arnold.

To safeguard these views the Oxford Preservation Trust purchased Matthew Arnold’s Field and other land. Sir Arthur Evans, keeper of the Ashmolean Museum erected a great mound to enable people to see the view over the tree tops, the name of which, Jarn Mound, was taken from the old name of nearby Jarns Heath.

In spite of modern dwellings and highways, obtrusive pylons and the noise of today’s mechanical life, there remains great variety of natural beauty, scenic value, and historic interest in this special city of Oxford and its connected countryside.
