Thanks for the tour. This isn't a part of the country I'm familiar with though a school friend of my daughter went to Eton's sixth form (courtesy of a scholarship) and he regularly sent cards with pictures of the college on the front.

Another lovely nostalgic tour. I remember cycle trips there from North London in my teens.....the homeward ride was not such a breeze.

What a wonderful guided tour. You strengthen my resolve to explore more of our lovely architectural treasures before they all become Indian restaurants and M&S stores. When one of us gets that camper van, eh?

Oh, it looks lovely! And I do love that letter box!

I've visited Windsor, once or twice, and many years ago, but I've never been to Eton. Now I do want to go, and wander round that lovely town, with all those curiosities and ancient buildings!

A charming tour, thank you!

We used to live near Windsor and enjoyed visiting there and taking a succession of visitors. Is the Christmas shop still there that's open all year round?
The same thing is happening to buildings in Oxford, each time we return a shop has squeezed into another of the lovely old buildings. They are forced to do minimal signage, but still corporate identity takes it over.

An enjoyable end-of-the-summer visit to Eton from my sofa. Thank you!

Oh, thank you so much. It was like walking alongside you, with no traffic or crowds. Beautiful place, and the sign is amazing. Thanks again.

Those days of being able to explore ancient monuments for nothing are pretty much long gone, though probably for the best I guess.

And you have solved a puzzle. I drove past the wheel yesterday and was totally perplexed as to its location.

Thought for life

  • The House of Breath, William Goyen
    We are the carriers of lives and legends - who knows the unseen frescoes on the private walls of the skull?

Thinking about . . .

  • Daniel Klein, Travels with Epicurus
    I too listen to music more and more. Throughout my life, music has stirred me more than any other art form, and now, in old age, I find myself listening to it almost every evening, usually alone, for hours at a time.
  • Julia Blackburn, Thin Paths
    I began writing because I liked to write things down. I learnt foreign languages because they seemed to enter my head by a process of osmosis.
  • Joan Bakewell, Stop the Clocks
    I live contentedly alone. It's better that way and I am often thoughtful about what has been and what might have been. There are many like me.
  • Patti Smith, M Train
    Oh to be reborn within the pages of a book.
  • Patti Smith, M Train
    Why is it that we lose the things we love, and things cavalier cling to us and will be the measure of our worth after we’re gone?

    I don't believe in God. I find it much easier to believe in ancestors. I like to imagine they are pointing us in the right direction.

Don't miss a post!
