B596 Oxford North Junction 28 July 1983

B596 (51099, 59416 & 51076) passes Oxford North Junction on 28 July 1983 with the 2A85 08:05 Hereford to Oxford service. Despite being on the edge of Oxford, this location still retains a rural feel, although trees have subsequently largely screened Port Meadow (to the left, in the background) from view. Hopefully the historic significance of Port Meadow (and its annual winter flooding!) will halt any potential westwards spread of Oxford.
