Port meadow Oxford

“We all know that a sky with clouds in it is much more interesting than one that doesn’t have any.” ~ Jodi Picoult

This is Port Meadow in Oxford. A beautiful haven that lays to the north east of the city. It is an ancient area of grazing land that has never been ploughed. It is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086 giving the Freeman of Oxford the right to graze their animals free of charge which continues to be the case right up to the present day. If you ever go to Oxford make sure you visit this beautiful, natural, untouched piece of meadow land. You will not be disappointed.
