Magdalen Bridge, Oxford
Magdalen Bridge - above - carries High Street traffic towards a busy junction and roundabout known as The Plain. Behind the photographer a boat hire company rents out punts and rowing boats during 'the season'. On the opposite bank of the River Cherwell is Angel and Greyhound Meadow (a.k.a. Angel Meadow). This is a flood-meadow that derives its name from the former Angel and Greyhound coaching inns in High Street, for which this 'green space' served as a grazing pasture for horses. There is now a pub named in nearby St Clement's Street called "The Angel & Greyhound; an interesting example of an inn named after a meadow that was named after two inns. Because it is low-lying it is often partially or completely flooded during February/March.
