Meanwhile in Baja Oxford

(Abingdon, by analogy with Baja California).

One of the stranger things in the town centre, a christian retreat centre, has a website. You can go to public meditation there twice a day. There is something very similar in Sutton Courtenay as well. Oxfordshire is absolutely crawling with scientific research establishments and strange religious centres.

You can also see the old entrance to the Wilts and Berks canal. I didn't take my phone with me to take a photo, but here is one I have linked directly to the picture as the website is horribly java heavy and killed IE on my machine
I believe there is a similar sign somewhere, where they want to rebuild the canal - there are buildings over where it used to go before it was filled in.

I felt inspired to take some piccie with my phone, as Abingdon was looking particularly attractive today, but sadly the thing in my pocket turned out to be a roll of plastic bags not a phone!
