In Search of Another Well

Today’s task would be to ride to Binsey, a hamlet close to Oxford City centre and locate a Well I had noticed on my map of the area. Binsey would add to my County Quest List.

This is the scenic half of the tiny hamlet of Binsey, my road to the Well goes off to the left.
At the end of the single track road the Church that I knew was there from the map. What I hadn’t anticipated on the access road to the Well was the Strictly Private sign blocking my entry. Oh dear, at least I got to see the ancient Yew tree in front of the church.
At the top of the long hill out of Oxford I came across this great combination of autumnal colour and thatch.
Back home in Drayton in front of the now completed wall.
Another great morning out, though the weather was pretty cool and the sun refused to show itself at.

    Looking at the green moss on the buildings the rainy island is living up to its reputation. Swap you some sunshine for some rain.

      Yes, we do get the odd day when it drizzles a bit.

    Nice photos. Wondering if you need a well, or just using that as a reason to ride ;’-).

    Well . . . . . !! Not just private — STRICTLY PRIVATE — I take that to mean they are totally serious. 😉
    Always enjoy the photos, the thatched roofs particularly
    The newly complete wall was done very . . . . well.

      Yes as a law abiding citizen I wasn’t going to push my luck looking for a Well that couldn’t have matched the Maharajah’s.
