peripatetics - Oxford

I'm presently (re-)reading a compilation of Dorothy Sayers' Lord Peter short stories.  This brought to mind a visit I made to Oxford (the university Lord Peter Wimsey attended, as much as a fictional character can attend a real place), and also created an excuse to post a few pictures.

I also associate Oxford with Phillip Pullman's terrific middle reader, His Dark Materials Trilogy (and related books); some of the stories are in part set in an alternate-universe version of Oxford.
