A Block from from St Hughs'

Be sure to click on images to enlarge for details!

Our "parade of shops"

A lane narrow enough to string lights between the buildings on either side.

This garden shop is on two levels connected by a wrought-iron spiral staircase. The shop isn't much bigger than the staircase.

Gorgeous high-Victorian flats above one of two galleries in North Parade.

Mmm. Hot bacon baps. One of several groceries in the lane. I skipped the baps, though

The indispensable newsagents alongside a friendly cafe--on a Saturday morning where else do you want to be?

The Rose and Crown, next to an Indian restaurant which often caters to St Hughs' functions

Gardener's Arms

Popham hairdresser's--note the reflections in the window. This lane is teeny tiny!

An even narrower offshoot of North Parade.

Puffballs reassuringly present but well-contained

Gives new meaning to Elvis's "London's Brilliant Parade." Nice to see bikes loitering at the kerb.

St Hughs is in the north end of Oxford between Woodstock and Banbury Roads.
