trap grounds, lord of the flies, marking done, free-ish week, summer school, exeter college

Strayed off the Oxford canal towpath this morning and explored part of the Trap Grounds site, about half a mile north of the city centre.

I've passed the site countless times over the years and used to walk part of it from the Port Meadow side when we lived on Osney Island.

I had no idea that the canal part was such a wonderful place, though! It's made up of reed beds and woodland, with raised walkways, a hide and play areas that look like something out of Lord of the Flies.

Why was I in Oxford on a Saturday? Work, of course--but come 4 pm, I've a few days off. Can't wait. Meanwhile, the marking is done (for now) and there's a relatively free week ahead before the summer school at Exeter College starts. Yay!
