L207 Hinksey 29 July 1991

L207 (54396 & 51221) passes Hinksey Yard on 29 July 1991 with the 2C45 14:48 Oxford to Reading Network SouthEast 'all stations' service. What is particularly interesting about this picture is that it shows various Oxford landmarks, which have long since been obscured by trees from this location. On the left, partially hidden behind the mast like structure of Oxford Ice Rink, is St Barnabas church in Jericho. To the right of the ice rink is the chimney of Morrells brewery, still clearly in use at the time. The brewery closed in 1998, but the chimney remains. Further to the right is the tower of Oxford Castle, whilst on the extreme right is the tower and spire of Nuffield College (completed in 1960).
