Walk registration now open!
We’re excited to announce that our next Oxford Photo Walk will take place on Saturday 8 September at Oxford University’s Science Area – just north of the city centre, from 1:00 to 2:30 pm.
Starting outside Rhodes House, we will walk along South Parks Road and then Hinshelwood Road to the newly built Centre for Quantum Physics, sampling along the way all that is good in concrete and glass. Thence to the heart warming brutalism of the Engineering and Physics departments, and Arup’s 1967 masterpiece – the Denys Wilkinson Building. From there we cut through to the Mathematical Institute on Woodstock Road, and finally on to an old OPW favourite – the Blavatnik School of Government.
Along the route there will be alternative paths for the more classically minded to take in the facades of the Natural History Museum, Keble College and the Faculty of Philosophy, if you like that kind of thing.
Our walk coincides with Oxford Open Doors 2018 https://www.oxfordpreservation.org.uk/content/oxford-open-doors. Both the Andrew Wiles Building of the Mathematical Institute and the Blavatnik School of Government will be open to the public until 3pm. They are both worth a look inside.
The walk is barely 1.3km and all flat. Although there are many buildings to see, you should be finished within 90 minutes.
We hope that those in need of refreshment at the end of such exertion will join us in the Jericho Tavern at 56, Walton Street https://www.thejerichooxford.co.uk.
There are only 20 places available, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
As with all our walks, everyone is welcome! Whatever your camera equipment and wherever you are on your photography journey – whether a complete beginner or a professional – we would love you to join us.
And don’t forget to keep and eye on our Facebook Group to join the conversation and keep up-to-date with everything that’s going on.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
