In the little town of Wolvercote there is still a lot of evidence of the way things used to be. This cottage is one of them. It is set just at the edge of Port Meadow where farmers used to let their cattle feed and drink. The windows are small with shutters for the rain and winter, the roof is still thatched, and the original Oxford Stones* are wearing down and being replaced one at a time. This is just one of the many times that I feel I have stepped back in time, that I am looking at the way things once were.
Until next time,

*Oxford Stone~ This type of stone is refereed to as Oxford Stone because it is the typical stone used in many of the buildings. It tends to always be this light sand color and wear quickly, but can easily be replaced one at a time to keep up the appearance of the building.
